    well (no snark).

    Last I saw Barrett was simply non-committal.  With all he knew about Walker (being close-up in MKE) he really blew chunks running against him in 2010.  Ugh.  

    It is necessary that laws should be passed to prohibit the use of corporate funds directly or indirectly for political purposes; it is still more necessary that such laws should be thoroughly enforced. - Theodore Roosevelt, 1910

    •  I think I was referring to him running for (0+ / 0-)

      re-election as tacit admission we wouldn't run in the recall.  I'm no expert, this stuff is just easy to follow if you read the daily digests at Daily Kos Elections.

      I changed by not changing at all, small town predicts my fate, perhaps that's what no one wants to see. -6.38, -4.15

      Non-committal is how I have been reading Barrett's responses so far too.   The two names that have pubically said they are seriously consdiering it (that I'm aware) are Cullen and now Lafollette.

    •  Not one single candidate should (6+ / 0-)

      publicly declare or publicly ponder a run.  The recall should be about Walker and the GOP.  Having candidates step forward shifts the conversation to THEM and away from what Walker and the GOP on behalf of the Kochs, Chamber of Commerce and ALEC have done to our state.

      There already is class warfare in America. Unfortunately, the rich are winning.
