Libya 5

This is going to be the short version.
I thought Obama did pretty well in the speech last night.
I would like to hear more about the following:
1. He said that he had consulted with the leadership of the Congress. Has Congress indicated whether it was enough?
2. I really wish he hadn't said (last week) "Gaddafi has got to go."
If the US president says somthing like that I don't think it works to walk it back to "ought to".
3 I wish this intervention were based on the interest of our Allies in S. Europe who would face a flood of refugees if things go bad.
4 If it is based on humanitarian grounds, then there is no limit to our obligations.
