So, it's confrontation time this week in Washington. Congressional Democrats are casting votes on Iraq war funding with pullout dates attached. Authorizing subpoenas for top White House officials, including Karl Rove, in the US Attorneys inquiry. Lining up — at least rhetorically — with Al Gore on warnings a "planetary emergency" on climate.

Republicans are drawing some lines, breaking some ranks. We've got John Edwards staying in the campaign as his wife, Elizabeth, confronts cancer, again. A pet food scare. The UN secretary general takes a near-miss mortar round in Baghdad.
