President Barack Obama's request for war authority to fight ISIS was on newsmakers' lips
during the Sunday talk shows , but whether Congress can actually deliver one didn't become any clearer. While there's appetite in Washington to create a new Authorization for Use of Military Force, or AUMF, that would define the fight against ISIS and enshrine it in legislation, legislators are expected to spar in the coming weeks over the shape of such a measure. Obama sent Congress his draft this week, six months after the U.S.-led coalition began pounding ISIS from the air.
