“I don’t know,” Pelosi said in an interview with Time magazine. “I think it would be important to get a majority in the Congress. But I don’t know if it’s important how you would break it down. These issues are not really partisan.”

So far, The Fix’s whip count has 22 House Democrats opposing military action and 23 leaning toward opposing it. Combined, that means about one-quarter of House Democrats are likely to vote “no,” at this point.

“I certainly do think that it’s a sign of strength,” Pelosi said. “I would say he’s a tough hombre.”
