Top Senate Democrats are dismissing the troop-reduction plan President Bush is expected to outline in a speech tomorrow night.

Bush is expected to endorse a recommendation by the top U.S. general in Iraq to withdraw up to 30,000 U.S. troops from Iraq by next summer.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid calls it "unacceptable." And Senator Carl Levin of Michigan says the proposal creates "an illusion of change."

Vice President Dick Cheney plans to speak about Iraq on Friday at appearances at the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum in Grand Rapids, and at MacDill Air Force Base in Florida.
