Obama’s day: Interviews on Syria

President Obama

President Obama will spend much of Monday in front of television cameras, giving interviews on Syria before major congressional votes.

Obama will speak with anchors at ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox, CNN and PBS, seeking support for a military strike at Bashar Assad’s government over the use of chemical weapons.

The president also will meet Monday afternoon with Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel.

The television interviews are part of a major lobbying effort as Congress prepares to vote on authorizing military action.

In addition to phone calls to lawmakers, Obama traveled Sunday night to the vice president’s residence for a dinner with Vice President Biden and a group of Republican senators.

Obama, who faces intense opposition within both parties over Syria, will address the nation as a whole Tuesday night.

The Senate and House could vote as early as this week.
