Sen. Norm Coleman, R-Minn., said today after a two-day trip to Iraq that he would not support an increase in the number of soldiers in Baghdad.
He said he would "stand against" any effort to send a surge of more troops to Baghdad unless there's a clear vision that it will help end sectarian violence in the city.
"I think it would create more targets. I think we would put more life at risk," he said in a phone call with reporters from Bahrain. Coleman visited Baghdad, Fallujah, Taqaddum and Talil.

I guess the lap dog found that the Pres' lap was not comfy enough. He is looking for a new place to curl up.
I would have more respect for Senator Colman if he had done anything this past four years as Chairman of the Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations. Oh yes, I forgot, he investigated the UN. The Constitution of the United States is falling down around his ears and he is concerned with the UN; a body his party is trying to destroy/ignore.
