Josh Kraushaar, reporting for National Journal:
Despite the show of support from House Speaker John Boehner and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi on Tuesday afternoon, that's not going to move many votes. Neither is putting any pressure on their members to vote for a military strike against Syria despite their personal support. Both are calling it a vote of conscience and aren't urging members to join them.
In other words, "We stand by the President (wink wink, nudge nudge)."
Here's to hoping I was spectacularly wrong in thinking the White House would shove this thing through.
