Democrats have defected en masse from President Barack Obama’s decision to launch military strikes against Libya. And Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is pleading the president’s case to House Democrats on Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, LibyaThursday, Politico reports.

The White House is worried about the political fallout if the president loses two votes on the conflict scheduled in the House Friday.

As Clinton began her speech on the House floor, leaders of the Congressional Progressive Caucus issued a statement urging Democrats to vote against funding for the Libyan conflict.

“The U.S. has been engaged in hostilities for over 90 days without congressional approval, which undermines not only the powers of the legislative branch, but also the legal checks and balances put in place nearly 40 years ago to avoid abuse by any single branch of government,” wrote Reps. Raul Grijalva, Lynn Woolsey, Michael Honda and Barbara Lee.
