On Ending the War in Iraq

As Congress takes a break and the President continues to assert his will reagarding the continuing use of miliary actions in Iraq, I was pondering some on the nature of the impending clash between Congress and the President over the funding bill regarding the end of war in Iraq.

The President has been plain for his reasons to continue the war, and just as plainly says he'll veto any spending bill that calls for an end to the war.

How, many wonder, can Congress truly challenge him? I expect that much of their strategy hinges on Constitutional regulations of who has the power to do what. Their strategy, based on the Constitution, was vividly and plainly presented by Senator Russ Feingold at the end of January.
