President Bush has been on the phone all week dialing for allies. The administration is seeking nine votes in the Security Council for the latest U.N. resolution against Saddam Hussein. But prime minister Tony Blair, the president's strongest supporter so far, is getting flak from his countrymen for his position on Iraq. What will be the impact at the U.N.? What will it do to the president's plans to disarm Saddam? Doyle McManus of the Los Angeles Times and Michael Duffy of Time Magazine bring us up to the moment. The potential for war is an issue on the campaign trail as well. National Public Radio's Mara Liasson was in Iowa and she'll tell us how voters are reacting to the Democratic hopefuls' positions on the war. [24 minutes]
