Congressional leaders are right in principle and their actions balance diplomacy. Congressmen are good at snubbing which is consistent with being ineffective and irrelevant for the moment.

Chinese President Hu Jintao will come to Congress on Thursday for meetings on both ends of the Capitol with some of his critics, a day after being feted at the White House but also pressed on human rights and other issues.
In sharp contrast to the toasts and tributes of Wednesday night's state dinner hosted by President Obama, a bipartisan collection of congressmen are already asking sharply critical questions about China's handling of its domestic economy and its alleged human rights abuses.
