    Bad, sad news, I must say.  My heart hurt a bit upon reading the email.

    Well, as far as Senator, I want Tammy Baldwin in there.  Progressive as all hell and I firmly believe she can win.

    I wanted Russ to go for Walker's throne, so now that that's out of the question, who do we have on the bench?  I still love Tom Barrett so I guess I'll hope for him as the second choice.

    •  Tell us about Barrett (0+ / 0-)

      What do you like about him?  He's certainly indicated that he's interested in running again, so please tell us why he should get a second chance.

        That essentially conceded entire regions of the state to Walker before the race had barely begun, ran a clusterf*ck of a field operation and cringe-worthy ads, and ended with $100,000 still in the bank.

        Plus, he never really overcame the perception, even among die-hard Democrats, that he didn't really want to be governor and that his heart wasn't in the campaign. Unless there's a major shakeup in his camp, I don't see Barrett beating Walker a second time around.
