Obama pushes for Syria
Washington - President Obama is making a push tonight to sway Congress and the public, towards supporting a U.S. strike against Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad's regime.
Retaliation is sought in response to an alleged chemical attack in Damascus last month. The president will meet to discuss the issue with several top Democrats.
Lawmakers could start voting on a resolution to allow strikes against Syria as early as Wednesday.
Tonight, President Obama will make his case to the public in a series of six TV interviews. A nationwide presidential address is planned for Tuesday night.
In the meantime, Assad continues to deny the use of chemical weapons and is pledging retaliation if the U.S. strikes his country.
