WI Lawmakers on State of the Union Address

Wisconsin's U.S. senators are disappointed with President Bush's remarks regarding the possible war with Iraq during his State of the Union address.

Senator Russ Feingold says Bush's remarks on Iraq didn't satisfactorily explain why the American people should be preparing to go to war. The Democrat says insisting on unilateral military action now makes sense only if there's an imminent threat to the United States.

Feingold feels as though the president hasn't yet made that case clearly and publicly.

Senator Herb Kohl says the country needs to continue the weapon inspections in Iraq.

The Democrat also wants to make sure there's support from around the world and at home if there's a war.
