.@NancyPelosi: “The President justly made clear tonight that the threat of military action remains on the table..."
Great description from Scott Pelley: "like the presidential seal itself, he had olive branches in one hand and arrows in the other."

Obama making sure people know he understands Iraq and Afghanistan have made people weary of future conflicts.
