More Wisdom

James MadisonIn no part of the Constitution is more wisdom to be found, than in the clause which confides the question of war or peace to the legislature, and not to the executive department.

-- James Madison (16 March 1751 - 28 June 1836), fourth US president (1809-1817), co-author of the Federalist Papers, traditionally regarded as the Father of the US Constitution, 1793
