How does the lame- duck period limit the president 's ability to influence domestic policymaking in congress?

Why was the league of nations so important to president Wilson?

Wilson had formulated his famous "Fourteen Points" in 1918, intended to secure peace, arrange for an orderly establishment of new nations to replace the now fallen Axis Empires, and prevent future wars. His fourteenth point was the establishment of a "general association of nations" to enforce the other thirteen points and as a place where future conflicts between nations would be solved by arbitration instead of war. So basically, the League of Nations was Wilson's baby. His efforts to get it off the ground and to make the US join the League earned Wilson a Nobel Peace Prize, but in the end he could not get the US to join, because Congress feared that the League's articles of association (especially Article X) could at a future point draw the US into a war against its will.

The Congress of Vienna was a turning point because it introduced the concept of working together to maintain peace. The Concert of Europe was established, with the European countries working together (in harmony) to retain peace and suppress uprisings in order to maintain the balance of power.

Why were Americans against President Wilsons peace plan?

The main point of contention within Wilson's 14 Points was Article 10, which guaranteed territorial integrity and political independence of all members within the League of Nations. Opponents to this plan felt that this condition would force Americans to fight the wars of foreigners. The main senator to object this point was Senator Henry Cabot Lodge. Wilson's peace plan was a failed dream because he could not even get his own people to support it.
