January 13, 2007 -- U.S. Senator Hillary Clinton, a Democrat who is considering running for president, arrived in Baghdad today for talks with top Iraqi officials and U.S. military commanders.
Clinton's visit comes days after President George W. Bush this week announced plans to dispatch more troops as part of a new U.S. strategy for Iraq.
Clinton has criticized Bush's plan as a "proposed escalation of the war in Iraq." Clinton is visiting Baghdad with another fellow Democratic senator, Evan Bayh, and a Republican Congressman, John McHugh.
