Iraq war protesters turned out in Madison, a day after President Bush vetoed an Iraq spending bill that included a deadline for troop withdrawal. About 100 people gathered on the steps of the state Capitol Wednesday evening. David Koene of Madison said it was time to send a message to Washington: “we are sick of this war, we want it to come to an end, and we're ready for our political leaders to start to listening to us any time.” Danny Maldonado had another message for Washington. “Really, the only true action we have as recourse at this point is asking for the impeachment of Dick Cheney.” Daryl Sherman, an Army Special Forces veteran from Madison, says he's opposed the effort in Iraq from the beginning. “The most troubling thing about it is, it's a preemptive war. We've set a precedent where if you don't like what somebody's doing . . . you can go in and kick the hell out of 'em.” The protest, called by the Madison chapter of moveon.org , came a day after President Bush vetoed an Iraq spending bill that included a deadline for troop withdrawal.
