The rumor on the Hill is that a number of so-called moderate democrats may actually vote to fund the troops despite their anti-military leadership!
This comes from Far-Left AmericaBlog, so do with it what you will, but the author does have contacts inside of Washington:

It’s time to replace some conservative Democrats in Washington, DC. I just heard from an impeccable source that there is serious concern on the Hill that conservative Democrats in the House will vote with the Republicans to strip any and all restrictions from the Iraq supplemental tomorrow, effectively giving Bush all the money he wants with no restrictions and no effort to hold either him or the Iraq government accountable for anything. I.e., they will vote to continue this war along the same disastrous course because they’re too afraid to challenge George Bush and his failed leadership.
Let me reiterate: This isn’t some idle rumor. The concerns are coming from Hill sources themselves.
Yes, while the Republican leaders of the House and Senate are publicly claiming that they won’t give Bush a blank check, they’re maneuvering behind the scenes to do just that. And while Republican members of Congress are supposedly laying down the law for Bush in private meetings, on the House floor they’re going to give Bush everything he wants and needs to continue the war indefinitely.
If that happens, then we need to hang this war, and hang every lost life and every wasted dollar, around the neck of every Republican and conservative Democrat who betrays our troops and our country tomorrow.
Obviously, the writers at AmericaBlog are a little looney to say the least. It is always amazing to see how Leftists blame Al Qaeda attacks at Iraqi markets on the US… Sick.
Anyway… If this is true and there are actually democrats in the House that do still support the military then good for them for not surrendering Iraq to Al Qaeda.
Oh… And to any Republican who votes to give Iraq to Al Qaeda after one of the most brilliant military campaigns in American history…
You will never, ever get my vote.
So are democrats crumbling to surreder?… Or not?
Strata-Sphere has the update… It looks like a crumble.
