I think that maybe someone in Congress such as Bernie Sanders or Al Franken should bring the issue up. I think someone like Corker could also get behind this, including more moderate and sane Republican Senators.

The Senate has always been the place for cooler heads versus the more volatile and partisan House. Cordial bipartisanship and good statecraft can and occasionally does come out of the Senate. Maybe we at DU need to promote this with a Petition and a drive to contact our Senators?

We need to restrict the use of nukes to a program of Congressional approval or disapproval. Only in a Congressional Declaration of War should use of Nukes be authorized. This has been a long-standing problem of too much power in the hands of one person, ie the President. It needs to be addressed and corrected ASAP.
