  •  Would a censure vote (3+ / 0-)

    now mean there couldn't  be an impeachment vote later? I don't think so.

    Censure is a great step to be taking NOW. Because it is relatively rare, it could get a great deal of noise going in the press, and if it could get to the floor--which it probably can't--it would garner enough votes to scare the bejesus out of the right wing.

    An impeachment vote is reasonable only if the Dems win in the fall. But an action on censure would help pave the way for it, win or lose.

    Incompetent, dishonest, and corrupt--it chants well

      which is the only reasonable approach where people realize impeachment is Draconian. Deserved, but extreme, nonetheless. As censure becomes a "mainstream" concept, begin to introduce the appropriate recourse for the President - impeachment. Use the same playbook as the anti-choice religiosos, a gradual process, until, of course, they made the huge mistake in South Dakota of biting off more than the public could chew.
