Secretary of State John Kerry and Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel spent time before members of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on Tuesday to discuss the motivation behind the Obama administration's decision to seek approval to use military force against Syria. Meanwhile, President Obama is gaining support from both parties in Congress.

FOX News Radio's Jared Halpern reports from Washington:

John Boehner, Barack Obama

House Speaker John Boehner is ready to support use of military force against Syria.

Boehner: "I'm gonna support the president's call for action."

Nancy Pelosi

Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi is also on board:

Pelosi: "Weapons of mass destruction, deterring their use, is a pillar of our national security."

But Senators from both parties are skeptical. New Mexico Democrat Tom Udall asking Secretary of State John Kerry:

Udall: "How can this administration make a guarantee that our military actions will be limited?"

Kerry telling the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, the President is not asking Congress to authorize boots on the ground in Syria.
