Americans overwhelmingly say they oppose the war in Iraq, but the war in Iraq goes on.

So, where's the antiwar movement?

Well, it's all over — and nowhere. It's in Congress, among Democrats and some Republicans. It was in the streets of Washington, D.C. this weekend, with a few thousand protestors chanting and marching. It was in the rhetoric in Iowa, at Senator Tom Harkin's steak fry. But where's the beef?

Last week belonged to Petraeus and Bush. Today, we hear from the antiwar crowd.
