    WASHINGTON - The Senate gridlocked on the
    Iraq war in a sharply worded showdown on Saturday as Republicans foiled a Democratic attempt to rebuke
    President Bush over his deployment of 21,500 additional combat troops.

    The vote was 56-34. That was four short of the 60 needed to advance the measure, which is identical to a nonbinding resolution that Democrats pushed through the House on Friday.

    "The Senate, on behalf of the American people, must make it clear to the commander in chief that he no longer has a rubber stamp in Iraq," said Majority Leader Harry Reid (news, bio, voting record), D-Nev., in the final moments before the vote.
