And so it begins...

From NBC's Mike Viqueira
With very little fanfare, a House-Senate conference has just approved the Iraq supplemental spending bill. The measure now heads to the House floor Wednesday and the Senate on Thursday. Then it's on to the president for a certain veto next week.

The measure would call for a withdrawal to begin by October 1, with a "goal" of having combat troops gone by March 2008.
