President Obama to meet with Sen. McCain over Syria


President Barack Obama today is looking to enlist the help of the man he defeated in 2008. Republican Sen. John McCain will be at the White House for talks on Syria -- and he'll be joined by fellow GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina.

Both senators have argued that Obama must not only punish the Syrian regime with missile strikes, but must also seek to push President Bashar Assad out of power.

Obama is hoping they can help rally lawmakers behind the idea of U.S. military action against Syria.

Top administration officials met with lawmakers yesterday in a classified briefing and more briefings are to come this week.
