7. You're right to a point. The Hill editorial talked only about impeachment
Edited on Thu Mar-16-06 11:35 AM by leveymg
But, the current context is censure. The same political logic applies to both. The Dems would, of course, lose a vote on censure as surely as one on impeachment. But, they might gain some self-respect, and a real Party-line censure fight would show some spinal development and probably gain at least as much (and probably more) than might be lost by goading the Republicans. And, that overshadowing issue -- how can the Dems win if they don't oppose -- isn't addressed by Josh.

Marshall and the Dem leadership need to reconsider this. If they want to win, they need to define themselves as opposed to unwarranted domestic spying, and show they are willing to put that point to a vote of censure against Bush.
