Bush says open to suggestions on Iraq

U.S. President George W. Bush said Thursday that he is open to any suggestions on Iraq following the Democrats' control of the House of Representatives in midterm elections.

"Whatever party you come from, we all have a responsibility to ensure that these troops have the resources and support they need to prevail," Bush said after a cabinet meeting.

After the Democrats took control of the House of Representatives, Bush vowed not to withdraw U.S. troops out of Iraq.

Bush has acknowledged that the Democrats' victory is a sign that Americans are frustrated by a lack of progress in Iraq and said he looks forward to working with the Democrats in the Congress.

Mounting violence as well as U.S. casualties in Iraq, and corruption and scandals of the Republicans have driven the voters to turn to the Democrats in Tuesday's midterm legislative elections.
