***bumped and update: Senate approves the bill…“The Senate vote to send the legislation to the president was 80-14.”***

Oh, the nutroots are as unhappy with the White Flag Dems right now as grass-roots conservatives are with the Amnesty Republicans:

Bowing to President Bush, the Democratic-controlled House reluctantly approved fresh billions for the Iraq war on Thursday, minus the troop withdrawal timeline that drew his earlier veto. The 280-142 vote sent the bill to the Senate for final passage, expected later in the evening.

“The Iraqi government needs to show real progress in return for America’s continued support and sacrifice,” said Bush, and he warned that August could prove to be a bloody month for U.S. troops in Baghdad’s murderous neighborhoods.

Five months in power on Capitol Hill, Democrats coupled their concession to the president with pledges to challenge his policies anew. “This debate will go on,” vowed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, announcing plans to hold votes by fall on four separate measures seeking a change in course.

Keep it up and Cindy Sheehan’s bound to follow through on her threat and run for Congress.
