White House Woos Left on Syria Resolution

First Read: "Here's the logic behind the effort: Locking down House Democratic -- and liberal -- votes allows the White House to go back to House Speaker John Boehner to get the remainder of available Republican votes. But the White House will have to deliver a large share of Democratic votes. And consequently, we can report that momentum is growing for President Obama to address the nation in a primetime speech. If Democrats -- many of whom were elected in the aftermath of Iraq -- are going to have to cast a tough vote for military intervention, they're going to need cover from Obama."

Roll Call: 20 lawmakers to watch on Syria.
