“On October 2 [2002], the White House held a Rose Garden ceremony…to announce a resolution had been finalized [giving President Bush permission to wage war with Iraq]. …[Democratic House Leader Dick] Gephardt’s [MO] decision to back the president’s resolution killed [Foreign Relations Committee Member Senator Joseph] Biden’s [D-DE] bipartisan alternative in the Senate and guaranteed a victory for the White House.”
