Democrats faltering on Iraq vote...

The tough talk last week in the U.S. House of Representatives about the Iraq supplemental funding bill - and the inclusion of a definite time line for withdrawal of troops - isn't proving to be so tough. It now appears that a vote on the bill, scheduled for tomorrow, maybe delayed because there isn't enough support among Democrats to pass it in the House.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is still talking tough - only now she's directing that tough talk at her own caucus members who are claiming to be undecided or made a decision to oppose the measure. She's even going as far, supposedly, of threatening some with the lose of committee seats.

Connecticut's 2nd District Congressman Joe Courtney supports the measure, and he'll interviewed on C-SPAN in the morning explaining his position on the funding portion as well as the time table. Courtney is scheduled to appear at around 8:20 a.m. for the 20-minute, live nationally-televised interview.
