President George Bush travels to Capitol Hill in an attempt to restore order among congressional Republicans bickering over the Iraq war and the prisoner-abuse scandal. After an hour-long closed-door meeting with House and Senate Republicans, members of Congress said the president gave an upbeat speech and issued assurances about his plan for Iraq. NPR's Don Gonyea reports.
