Sen.Clinton seeks new way to withdraw U.S. Troops

Summary: This story appeared in the New York Times in which presidential contender Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-NY) proposed a bill to reverse the war authority granted the president ito invade Iraq. The proposal came days after President Bush vitoed a $124 billion emergency spending bill for troops in Iraq that linked the funds to a time table for withdrawal.

The story, was unsually long but was written in a way that makes readers to read it to the end. The writer, in a very professional and clever way presented views from Democrats and Republicans. Hourglass style was effectively used.
opportunities: The story did make it clear whether or not President could vitoe the proposed legislation if it passed the Democrat-controlled Congress.A comment from President Bush could have gone a long way in balancing the story. Read it at:
