Two more Republicans break with Bush on Iraq
Two more Republicans have joined the call to remove U.S. troops from Iraq starting in 2008.

Sen. Pete Domenici (R-New Mexico) and Rep. John Doolittle (R-California) both said the war was taking too big of a toll on American soldiers. They said the Iraqi government should take more control of its affairs.

Domenici and Doolittle join at least three prominent Republicans who have broke with President Bush and the White House. Additionally, six Republican Senators are supporting a bill to withdraw most troops by March 31, 2008.

Domenici and Doolitte face re-election next year. Both have faced ethical questions -- Domenici and his role in the firing of U.S. Attorney David Iglesias; Doolittle and his relationship with convicted lobbyist Jack Abramoff.
