(END SOT) PRESIDENT BUSH HOPES A PLAN TO BRING


SOME U-S TROOPS HOME WILL EASE THE

GROWING CALLS FOR AN END TO THE WAR IN
IRAQ.



(SOT: President Bush) - "The way


forward I have described tonight makes
it

possible, for the first time in years,
for people who have been on opposite

sides of this difficult debate to come
together."



THE COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF HAS ACCEPTED
RECOMMENDATIONS FROM HIS TOP GENERAL ON

THE GROUND -- DAVID PETRAEUS. THE
MILITARY WILL START WITHDRAWING TROOPS

ADDED AS PART OF THE SURGE STRATEGY AND
57-HUNDRED WILL BE HOME, BY

CHRISTMAS.. DEPENDING ON PROGRESS.




(SOT: President Bush) - "The principle


guiding my decisions on troop levels

in Iraq is "return on success." The
more successful we are, the more
American

troops can return home."



(STANDUP BRIDGE: Jennifer Miller / CBS
NEWS / THE WHITE HOUSE) - "PRESIDENT

BUSH ALSO USED HIS SPEECH TO CHALLENGE
IRAQI LAWMAKERS. HE PUSHED THEM TO

FIND COMMON GROUND... AND MAKE
POLITICAL PROGRESS."



(SOT: President Bush) - "At the same


time, they understand that their
success

will require U.S. political, economic,
and security engagement that extends

beyond my Presidency."



THAT'S NOT WHAT WAR CRITICS LOOKING FOR
A QUICK END TO THE CONFLICT WANTED TO

HEAR. DEMOCRATS AND SOME REPUBLICANS
ALSO POINT OUT -- THE PRESIDENT IS NOT

MAKING ANY SIGNIFICANT CHANGES IN
STRATEGY AND THAT THE TROOPS INVOLVED
IN THE

SURGE WERE ALREADY SLATED TO COME HOME

NEXT SUMMER.



(SOT: Sen. Jack Reed / D - RHODE


ISLAND) - "We intend to exercise our

Constitutional duties and profoundly
change our military involvement in
Iraq."



DEMOCRATS WILL START BY BRINGING NEW
ANTI-WAR BILLS UP FOR DEBATE NEXT WEEK.


BUT, THE PRESIDENT IS PLANNING HIS OWN
FULL-COURT PRESS.. HITTING THE ROAD

FRIDAY, TO RALLY SUPPORT. JENNIFER

The victim who is 43 years old says
she noticed a car following too closely
near Lord Botetourt High School just
after 12:30 Wednesday morning.

It continued all the way up 220 and
onto interstate 64.

She didn't think much of it until she
got off at exit 16 when she saw a car
following her all the way through
Covington.

Just north of the city, the tailing
car turned on a flashing blue light.

A man in a dark uniform made her get
out of the car, made a sexual comment
and hit her in the face which knocked
her to the ground.

Justin, until the catch the suspect,
what should women do if they are in a

JUSTIN ANSWER:

The sheriff says if a deputy tries to
pull you over, you should stop where it
is lit, or near a densly populated
area.

Keep in mind Jean, the suspect
apparently used a blue revolving light.
That should be a red flag because most
law enforcement officers now use strobe

VO-NAT Former Governor Mark Warner made


his decision to run for the U-S Senate
public today through this online video.

He believes the Senate is where
he can best serve Virginians and, if
elected, promises to be an independent
voice.

The 52- year- old says America's
problems can't be solved by partisan
politics.

He hopes to take the experience
he gained in Richmond he says working
across party lines-- to Washington.

Warner for promising not to raise taxes
and then doing so as governor.

Meanwhile, another former
governor... Jim Gilmore is also
interested in the job.

You may recall he recently pulled
out of the presidential race... well,
he's back in Virginia now raising money
and helping elect Republicans to the
state- house.

He calls the Senate seat a "big
opportunity" that he's considering.

He also hasn't ruled out running
for governor again in 2009.

Another Republican interested in
the job is northern Virginia
Congressman Tom Davis.

Both men have indicated they'll
wait until after November to make their
decisions.

VO-NAT How about, your mascot getting


beat down?

Unfortunately for Houston fans
that was just the case in their season
opener verses the Oregon Ducks

The Ducks' mascot got upset after

the Cougars' mascot imitated his
signature move -- doing pushups after a
touchdown.

As you can see, he didn't take it
very well.

But the Cougars may of gotten the
last laugh.

The Duck will not take the field
this Saturday after being suspended for
what the University of Oregon deems as
'Inappropriate Conduct'
