Drudge: Bush would veto stem cell bill

Drudge has a flash report up about the possibility of Bush's first veto--and it's pro-life? Not: "President Bush likely will cast the first veto of his presidency if the Senate, as expected, passes legislation to expand federal funding of embryonic stem-cell research, White House aide Karl Rove said Monday.

'The president is emphatic about this,' Rove said in a meeting with the editorial board of The DENVER POST, newsroom sources tell the DRUDGE REPORT.

The U.S. House of Representatives has already passed the legislation, co-sponsored by Rep. Diana DeGette, D-Colo., and Rep. Mike Castle, R-Del. If the Senate approves the bill this month it would go to the president's desk.

'It is something we would, frankly, like to avoid,' Rove said "
