    In my opinion, it was pretty much like the "health care" debate going on now between the Senate and the President. It is not now so much about revising health care, as it is about the next congressional elections.

    Wilson and Henry Cabot Lodge were bitter enemies, Lodge greatly loved the results of the 1918 elections, in which Lodge and Republicans saw a glimmer of hope of "destroying" the President. This was the main reason. Lodge used isolation arguments in his interpretation of Article 10 (America shouldn't get involved), ut the real reason for the Senate defeating it, was Lodges hatred for the Democrat Wilson, and his vision that defeat would help the Republicans. It did, Republicans held power through the next ten years until the Great Economic collapse.
