Hundreds of thousands of antiwar demonstrators will take to the streets this weekend in a surge for peace that is long overdue.
The message of these demonstrations is not directed at the Bush Administration.
It is the message that this weekend's antiwar demonstrators can and must deliver.
Nonbinding resolutions are a joke.
Congress needs to embrace its constitutional duty to check executive excess and to balance against dangerous exercises of the presidential prerogative.
The first step is to use the power of the purse to force a course correction regarding Iraq.
The second step is to use the full authority afforded the House and Senate by the Constitution to hold the President and the Vice President to account for their deceptions and their abuses of power--so that never again will the Republic be placed in so perilous a circumstance.
