This is the story of one man’s attempt to accomplish a milestone in the history of the American legislative process. Because of his initiative and leadership, the People’s House was given the unique opportunity to have its voice heard on the matter. Top O’Neill asked and answered the question that still echoes decades later: If Congress has the constitutional power to declare war, can’t it also declare to end war? Elected by the Senate peers as first woman Majority Leader, MA State Senate, Linda Melconian managed and led Senate on all public policy issues.
