Obama: Michelle’s a No Vote

President Obama said tonight that his wife Michelle opposes the idea of the U.S. launching another war. When asked whether he thought she’d be in favor of authorizing a war in Syria, “the answer’s no,” the president told NBC’s Savannah Guthrie Monday night.

The president made the statements in the course of round-robin interviews with five major news networks on Monday and ahead of his scheduled address to the nation on Tuesday evening.
