Will politics affect Obama's response to Putin's actions?

President Obama is threatening sanctions against Russia's President Vladimir Putin as the situation in Ukraine escalates, but he can't do it alone – he needs Congress to cooperate.

Here to discuss are CNN Political Commentator Peter Beinart and Mark Wallace, a former ambassador to the U.N. under President George W. Bush.
