Mr. Drukman talked about his new book, Wayne Morse: A Political Biography. It focuses on the life of Senator Wayne Morse who was most well-known for his initial opposition to the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution during the Vietnam War, which essentially gave President Johnson powers of appropriation that usually are reserved for Congress. Sen. Morse served as a Republican, Independent and Democrat during his time in the Senate and Mr. Drukman said Sen. Morse was “the closest thing to a conscience the Senate ever had.” Following his presentation, Mr. Drukman took questions from the audience. close
