The Bill that both Edwards and Hillary signed wasn't a declaration of war, in fact no formal declaration of war was ever made... The bill was designed to give the President the authority to use force, as leverage against Saddam should he refuse to allow UN inspections access to their facilities. That condtion of the authorization and others were never met.

Not buying that one, Unknown.  At the time of the vote, everyone knew it was a vote for war and that Bush would use it, too (why else even ask for it?).  This revisionist history that it was supposed to be this, or that simply doesn't jive with the facts.

Congress hasn't made a formal declaration of war since 1941, we fought Korea, Vietnam, Grenada, Panama, the Gulf War and Bosnia, all without declarations.
