Snowe Storm

The loss of yet another Republican on Iraq;

Senator Olympia Snowe (R-Maine) will join Sen. Chuck Hagel (R-Nebraska) and Sen. Gordon Smith (R-Oregon) in calling for troop withdrawal.

While it's not enough to get it passed, especially veto-proof, GOP support of the war is unraveling.

Already Sen. Richard Lugar (R-Indiana), Sen. Pete Domenici (R-New Mexico), Rep. John Doolittle (R-California) have expressed reservations about the surge.

UPDATE 6:03PM: CNN's Dana Bush is reporting that Sen. Robert Bennett (R-Utah) and Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tennessee) are also expressing frustration on Iraq.
