Principles or Politics?

Senator Russ Feingold's censure resolution has ignited a spat among leading bloggers who tend to be critical of the Bush administration.

Kevin Drum, the usually reliable and often shallow mirror of Beltway Democrat thinking, argues that it's bad politics. Josh Marshall, freelancing for The Hill, agrees and adds that it's premature "because Congress hasn’t tried" to warn the president he should abide by the law of the land.

Glenn Greenwald thinks Sen. Feingold's move is courageous and principled. Firedoglake says it's about damn time somebody woke up the Democrats.

The reason some dems are upset at Feingold is that they know it's not time for censure talk yet. Papa Dean says you have to wait until the eve of the mid terms and then let Bush have it with a little censure/impeachment "shock and awe".
