  •  IMHO, a real progressive (5+ / 0-)

    wouldn't be elected. Not in Wisconsin, not in many places in this country, not at the national level. We've been in teabag hell and it's gonna take a while to get out of it.

    Cullen isn't a "blue dog." He's a Dem, a real one. He doesn't take Dem money and vote like a republican. He gets along with everyone. He does compromise.

    I don't want to look like I'm pushing/supporting Cullen, nor am I saying I don't want a progressive. If I had my way, Feingold would be POTUS. But that isn't going to happen.  Feingold would be Wisconsin's governor. That likely won't happen either. If it does, I'll print this out, stew it up and eat the paper joyfully.

    Wisconsin is in a world of hurt with lost jobs and a draconian administration. We need someone to calm the waters. I'm not going to hold out for a "progressive."  That's what I'm here for along with a ton of others, possibly including  you. We'll  get there, but perhaps not in this election.
