Dems worry Obama will be ‘shamed and humiliated on national stage’

[Ed. note: Yeah, that’s what’s important]

Loyalty — that is the only reason Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC) can imagine supporting President Obama’s Syria resolution.

“If [Obama] gets saved at all, it’ll be because of loyalty of Democrats. They just don’t want to see him shamed and humiliated on the national stage,” non-voting delegate Norton told the Bill Press Show Tuesday.

Norton, known for her role in the civil rights movement, believes the United States must respond to Syria but is unsure that military action is the best option.

“I can’t believe that the only way to address it is a slight bombing which will somehow punish somebody or deter somebody,” she said.
