Six months into the U.S. campaign against ISIS, the president might finally give Congress a formal invitation to weigh in.
"Tonight, I call on this Congress to show the world that we are united in this mission," President Obama said in his State of the Union address.
The president has been saying things like that for several months, but he hasn't yet taken the official step of sending Congress an authorization for use of military force.
