    i can think of a lot of important people in history who thankfully didn't know their place in the back of a systemic bus.  personally i'd like to see pageboys telling senators where to stuff it right about now.

    •  'his place' (0+ / 0-)

      That is a pretty loaded term.  A better way to say what I mean is that I don't think it will accomplish anything for Dean to come out publicly in favor of the censure resolution.  

      There is a ton of frustration - that I share - with the non-support of this resolution.  I just think on this one, it has to be the Senate Democrats taking the lead to do the right thing.   Dean can't make them do it, and while his criticizing them would be satisfying, it wouldn't help.  It's not so much that Dean shouldn't be the leader, but on this he just can't.  His public criticism at this time wouldn't unite Democrats in support of the resolution, it would do the opposite.
