Telephone lines were open for viewer comments on news of the day. Callers discussed the U.S. House of Representatives vote on withdrawal of American troops from Iraq. Brief video clips from November 17 of the speech by Representative John Murtha (D-PA) in the House Chambers and at a press conference calling for the withdrawal were shown. Representative Jean Schmidt (R-OH) was also shown speaking about a phone call she received from a Marine colonel asking her to tell Congress to “stay the course” and that “cowards cut and run, Marines never do.” close
