21. You left out - Feingold attacking other Dems publicly
Edited on Fri Mar-17-06 10:36 AM by MH1

Yes, I have a quote by another probable '08 candidate in my profile. But I was 100% behind Russ (on his censure motion) until he made that statement.

Notice, that if you follow that link, it is to a comment on a thread that is bashing Mark Dayton for publicly criticizing Feingold - on Thursday, 2 days after Feingold publicly called Democrats who didn't immediately prostrate themselves to his censure motion "cowards". Oh, the irony, the irony.

Meanwhile, while Feingold's censure motion - which is good in its essence - drew the activists attention away, Pay-Go failed by only one vote, and a ridiculous budget bill which includes drilling in ANWR passed by only 2 votes.

So I guess that's a second criticism you left out - timing. Diversion of attention away from these other important matters. I'm not sure when would have been a good time to introduce it, but it really bugs me that the discussion of censure - which is really meaningless in terms of any concrete result - has trumped discussion of actual concrete matters like Iraq, Iran, and the deficit. (What is Russ' position on the deficit anyway? Why did he want to divert attention just at the time when the deficit could get some attention - during the budget debate? Or was he just not considering that effect of his motion?)
