Newsweek;10/2/2006, Vol. 148 Issue 14, p76
The article discusses U.S. Democratic Missouri Congressman Ike Skelton. He believes that reducing the number of U.S. troops in Iraq may be a risk that the U.S. has to take. If Democrats capture the House in November, 2006, Skelton would become chairman of the Armed Services Committee. He is described as a "Truman Democrat," a Democrat who is as hardheaded about national security as former U.S. President Harry Truman.
