Candidates respond to Bush's plan during Iowa visits

From CNN affiliate KCCI in Iowa:

DES MOINES, Iowa - President George W. Bush's plans for Iraq aren't sitting well with Democrats.

Bush said 5,700 U.S. forces will be home by Christmas instead of in the spring and four combat brigades will pull out as scheduled next July.

Two Democratic presidential candidates who were in Iowa on Thursday reacted to the plan. Bill Richardson spoke out about it during a stop in Council Bluffs, and Barack Obama talked about it while visiting Dubuque.
