But I'd expect the state attorneys general also know something about "rule of law," yet they aren't complaining that the federal government is holding back from challenging a state law.

You're making this way too complicated. My position is: enforce the law as enacted by the Congress and signed by the President. If we don't like the law, then work to change it. When we pick and choose which laws will be enforced, we no longer have rule of law, but rule of man, i.e. tyranny.
