The newly elected Sen. Robert Menendez (D-NJ), whose anti-war platform helped him gain a seat on the Foreign Relations Committee, says he'll vote for Ted Kennedy's bill to block the president from sending additional troops to Iraq.

In a speech to the nation Wednesday night, President Bush is expected to announce an increase of U.S. troop levels in Iraq. Robert Siegel talks with Menendez.
