The Obama administration is busy trying to line up support on Capitol Hill for some sort of military action against Syria. While party leaders in Congress say they support U.S. action, rank-and-file members are less sure.

Minnesota's congressional delegation is split over the Syria issue. Rep. John Kline, R-Minn., sits on the House Armed Services Committee and served 25 years in the Marine Corps. He discussed his position with Morning Edition host Cathy Wurzer.
