Mark Trahant: Division marked another major war too
Monday, February 23, 2004

"Let me tell you a story I've just read.

It's about a war president who went too far. He divided the country between those who favored military engagement and those who thought the president had been dishonest about his very reason for war.

One member of Congress was particularly troubled. The Illinois member, soon to become a Republican, rose on the House floor to express his displeasure; the president should not have the power to invade a country based on something that might happen or be allowed "to make war at pleasure.""
