The Washington Post adds Sen. John Warner (who praised Lugar's speech) and even Senate GOP leader Mitch McConnell to the list of senators changing their tone on Iraq.

Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.), a supporter of the troop surge and the war, said he would wait until the September report to reassess the Iraq situation. But he added that when Lugar speaks, "everybody tends to listen."

The New York Times also notes that Sen. George Voinovich "echoed Mr. Lugar's message in a letter to the president on Tuesday, a critique whose timing was coordinated to follow on the heels of Mr. Lugar's. 'I am also concerned that we are running out of time,' Mr. Voinovich wrote in the letter."
