ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the effort of U.S. Senate Democrats all-nighter to convey the American public over the Republicans to end the Iraq war. It stated that the all-nighter is unlikely to affect the expected failure vote to shut down debate over bipartisan amendment calling for the withdrawal of U.S. from Iraq. According to anti-war activist John Isaacs, the anti-war activist will be unhappy all over again when no amendment to end the war wins 60 votes.
