The pain of Kaine wanting Obama to explain

Tim Kaine wants a vote before authorizing military force against ISIS.
Not all Democrats agree.
Vulnerable Democrats fighting for their political lives are frustrated that Kaine, a Democrat from Virginia, is pressing for a debate on giving President Obama new war powers at a time when the commander-in-chief has become a political liability for them.
“Asking anybody to take that vote within two months of an election is just stupid. Why would you put people in that position?” said a Senate Democratic aide.
Is Kaine trying to help Obama share the blame?
Might be time to explain that.
