And first, the bully pulpit.

"The power to declare war, including the power of judging the causes of war, is fully and exclusively vested in the Legislature.  The Executive has no right, in any case, to decide the question" ~ James Madison
"Peace cannot be achieved by force, only by understanding."  ~ Albert Einstein
"To deny people their human rights is to challenge their very humanity.   To impose on them a wretched life of hunger and deprivation is to dehumanize them." ~ Nelson Mandela

I admit my ignorance, I wonder how often they are up for reelection?  I hope every four years or even sooner! I suppose it depends on the level...aren't Supreme Court Justices elected for life?
