Live Video Chat at 10 AM With Dodd Staff on Meaning of Today's Vote

Thanks to everyone who showed up. Here are the first ten minutes from the q&a live-streamed earlier today -- Tim

Later this morning the Senate will hold a cloture vote as to whether or not the Feingold-Reid-Dodd amendment can be considered as an addition to the Water Resources Development Act reauthorization. The Feingold-Reid-Dodd amendment requires that we begin withdrawing troops from Iraq within 120 days of enactment and mandates that all combat forces be redeployed by March 31, 2008.

To discuss the importance of the amendment and what it means for American security, as well as why Senator Dodd has taken a firm position on ending the war through Feingold-Reid-Dodd, we're holding a live web chat via UStream.tv. Chris Dodd for President Policy Director Amos Hochstein and Deputy Communications Director Hari Sevugan will answer your questions about where Dodd stands and what is happening today in the Senate.

You can ask your questions here in the comment thread. We'll do our best to respond in real time on UStream.

The web chat will start at 10 AM EST and is scheduled for thirty minutes.

Sorry I missed this

What I want to know is whether Reid-Feingold will become the caucus position even if it doesn't pass.

Question for Dodd

First all, Senator, thank you for sponsoring the bill.

Second, both Senators Clinton and Obama say they're going to vote for cloture to send a message of unity while refusing to endorse the concept of cutting off funds. On the contrary, they seem to be distancing themselves from the content of the bill.

Aren't they trying to have it both ways? Voting for cloture so that the antiwar base doesn't get angry but distancing themselves from cutting off funding so that they innoculate themselves against the insidious hurting-the-troops charge?

Re: Question for Dodd
I believe your question was touched upon when we did the stream. Hopefully we'll have a re-broadcast up for everyone to view on ustream, youtube, or some other format. Tim
