Dayton Wobbly on Feingold Opposition?

It appears the phone calls are having an effect. Although Mark Dayton told Bloomberg that Feingold's censure resolution was "premature, and over- reaching, which often involves losing more than gaining," callers to his offices are now reporting that he has backed off of this and has decided to take no position.

Could it be that Democrats are finally emboldened against a President with a 33% approval rating?

We've put up a list of "lions" and "lemmings" in the sidebar (so named by Digby). Maybe we should find out where Dayton belongs:

If there are any Minnesota residents out there we'd love it if you could give a call and report back in the comments.

It appears that Bloomberg writer Catherine Dodge, who was so quick to trumpet the GOP propaganda that Feingold's resolution would actually help the Republicans (did Unka Karl type that himself?), needs to check her sources. You can ask her to do so here.
