    After the invocation, national anthem, and call to order, should be a debate and vote on a resolution calling on the president to end the war in Iraq. Now.

    The people are way ahead of the Beltway crowd on this issue.

      Institute a fair, transparent voting process.  No more corporate involvement in elections. Provide voter-verified paper ballots. Get rid of the Electoral College.

      We must regain confidence in our voting process to have a true democracy.

    •  Yep, sooner we "end the war" (none)
      The sooner bleeding hearts can start calling for "something to be done" about the ethnic slaughter that then ensues in Iraq.

      Bush was an idiot for invading Iraq and then proceded to do a bad job of it.  However, AMERICA is responsible for what happens there and the bloodshed of the civil war will be on our hands as Americans.

      Wes Clark, among others, has laid out clear plans for putting Iraq back together instead of just shoving them off the cliff of civilization.
