Just What the Founders Feared: An Imperial President Goes to War

By Adam Cohen, at the NYT.

This is an excellent little Op-Ed--a must-read. One great point: "Commander-in-Chief" does NOT mean anything like "guy in charge of running the war," but, rather, something more like SCAEF or SACSEA. But the main excellent point: the Founders intended for Congress to keep the president on a short leash with regard to war.

It's time for Congress to show King George XLIII who's boss in this regard.

Right on.

However, the time for the Democrats to show Duhbya their power was in May and June, while debating the supplemental for Iraq. Instead, they caved, and it still demoralizes me.
