Chris Dodd on Face the Nation

Chris Dodd appeared on CBS Face the Nation with Bob Schieffer yesterday to discuss his Iraq and his campaign for the Democratic nomination.

Dodd made it clear that last week the Congress made a mistake by not debating the actual issue of Iraq - instead of just debating whether to debate. Dodd has been a strong opponent of the war in Iraq.

He will be putting a motion in the Congress to cut funding, but not to endanger the troops currently there.

Dodd also said he was concerned that America might be preparing for a war against Iran. He said that Iran should be engaged through diplomacy.

On his campaign, he spoke of his experience as a Congressmen. He also spoke highly of Obama, after his announcement to run for President Saturday. Questioned on his limited support thus far in the campaign, Dodd said that there is a long way to go before the vote next January.
