House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, backs President Obama’s request
for authorization to intervene militarily in Syria, as does House
Democratic Minority Nancy Pelosi, D-California.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nevada, is similarly “in,” while
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Kentucky, in mum.
The president has done a pretty good job of selling his plan to congressional leaders.
