Does this sort of thing have hope? or only as a gesture?

Woolsey, Waters, and Lee introduce a bill to bring our troops home within six months, including additional funds for Iraqi training, and also guarantees of decent veterans' health coverage. I don't know whether there are coordinated plans to pursue something like this, as opposed to Murtha's approach of using his committee to restrict funds for an escalation, and/or others. Is political will building?

Update: Apparently it's a veritable downpour of such measures, both symbolic and substantive. Still the question remains of whether any can pass, and/or whether they will have any effect on the Bushites.
