In an interview with NBC, President Obama suggested a diplomatic solution was at hand regarding Syria, and he said, "If you ask Michelle do we want to be involved in another war, the answer is no."

The NBC host asked, "Would you act without Congress? The answer could be yes, no, or I haven't decided."

"I think it's fair to say that I haven't decided. I am taking this vote in Congress and what the American people are saying very seriously. Because if you ask somebody, you know, I read polls like everybody else. And if you ask somebody, if you ask Michelle do we want to be involved in another war, the answer is no."
