The democrats are being asked

The democrats are being asked by their party leaders to produce a strong majority vote on a position that right now is extremely unpopular.

Furthermore, the primary argument their leaders are offering right as a basis for war is entirely fallacious:

Right now it seems there is a good chance that more and more democrats will go against their party leaders and vote NO on military intervention... without a supermajority from the democrats in the house it is looking like getting a resolution on military intervention will be very difficult.
