President Bush vetoed the war bill Tuesday, the four-year anniversary of his 'mission accomplished' declaration aboard the USS Abraham Lincoln. The president's veto came as no surprise, and although he said he hopes to reach a compromise with Democrats, he said he won't support an Iraq timetable. At left, President Bush headed toward Air Force One at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland for a trip to Florida.
