A matter of timing
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Just as President Bush gets set to hold his first press conference of the year to discuss the latest developments in Iraq and North Korea, a group of Republicans on the other end of Pennsylvania Avenue will begin speaking in support of the House resolution condemning the president's call for a troop increase.

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer is slated to yield the House floor to the group of Republicans at 11 a.m. ET, the same time Bush's press conference is scheduled to begin.

A senior Democratic aide tells CNN that the 11 a.m. time slot was pre-scheduled, and it's a "lucky coincidence or unlucky, depending on how you look at it."

-- CNN Congressional Producer Deirdre Walsh
