    Called it a total defeat for unions and endorsement of Walker. Bill Press and Sam Stein were on and pretty much agreed.
    Seems like losing 2 senate seats in republican districts is not a great endorsement of Walker to me.

      And this recall effort and the Kloppenburg election were defeats, pure and simple.

      If progressives like losing and claiming "moral victories" morning after morning after morning, they should keep listening to those who believe that electoral politics and the Democratic Party are the only or even viable routes to change.

      If they're tired of hearing the Monday morning excuses from those who claimed their strategy was a winner, then they'll kick these bloodsucking consultants, fund raisers and bureaucrats out and organize for real victory.
