    yes, we need to pay attention.

    At least consider this... if Congress votes no and doesn't give authorization and then the President still decides to move forward with a strike, there will most likely be a move by Republicans in the House for impeachment. Many people think the President is protected by the War Powers Act but others disagree. There is enough disagreement to start the process. Rand didn't say that out loud but he definitely let Kerry know that he (and obviously others of his party) think the move would be unconstitutional. It would be the start of a congressional drama of extreme proportions.
