Christopher Dodd on withdrawing troops and Presidential bid

Connecticut's Democratic Senator Christopher Dodd has come out in favor of beginning an immediate withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq, saying that "…the president should announce in January that we will begin withdrawing and redeploying our troops."

In an editorial in the Sunday Des Moines Register -- and clearly laying the groundwork for the Iowa presidential caucuses -- Dodd was very direct from the first sentence of his column.

"The time has come for the United States to begin the process of getting our troops out of Iraq," wrote Dodd, who many think will indeed run for the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination.
