Months after saying that the war in Iraq was 'drifting sideways,' Senator John Warner is now saying that he will stick by President Bush for now.
Warner has presented only a mild challenge to the President's policy and now says he ready to stand behind Bush, at least until August after visiting troops in Baghdad saying "following that, I will come back and publicly more fully discuss my views."
Many political experts believe that if Warner were to break position with the President, he would provide political cover for other Republicans to challenge the war, possibly giving Democrats the 60 votes needed to pass anti-war legislation.
