McConnell Remains Undecided on Syria

David Hawkings points out that "only one of the top five members of the bipartisan congressional hierarchy still sits on the fence about launching a punitive strike against Syria: Mitch McConnell, the Senate minority leader."

"McConnell looks to be taking as much time as he can. He's weighing his political considerations back home, where an isolationist stance would provide clear short-term benefit, against the pressures of his leadership role at the Capitol, where he's spent almost three decades as a Republican voice for a hawkish defense posture and an interventionist foreign policy."
