108th and 109th Congress was R and so was the President. The Iraq war resolution was from 10-2002, so that would have been a R President/D Senate/R House. I would bet that the R President didn't threaten to veto the bill and that the R House never filibustered over the issue.Year,Congress,President,Senate(100),House (435)
