  •  She just needs to watch herself on tv and see how (10+ / 0-)

    she comes across when she is not talking and I would guess there is something to learn about being interviewed on camera.

    I still think she sounds good, and she wants to bring the state together.

    I like it that she is saying she is/was a worker. She was sort of funny when she said she went to illinois for the unions.

    I like her, fix the demeanor thing, but she is grass roots and I would like to hear more from her.

    •  Thanks for the reassurance. (3+ / 0-)

      Like all Badgers, I truly want a strong, powerful, competent candidate to run against Scotty.

      Kathleen Faulk is not a good choice in my opinion...and apparently so with many others.

      After this year of living dangerously in WI and with all of the efforts of so many of us, this choice must be carefully weighted....so long as we have candidates willing to run.

      I just think there is too big of a rush to anoint KF by the unions.

      Too bad there isn't another Tammy Baldwin waiting in the wings.

      No bailouts, no handouts, and no copouts.

      •  I don't know about you, but I am sick of slick, (3+ / 0-)

        you know what I mean? I want someone who is intelligent and has integrity and who will actually work with people on both sides.

        I have to learn more about Vinehout, but so far she sounds pretty good to me.

        Do you think someone like her can win in Milwaukee, since apparently the Democratic establishment and the unions are endorsing Falk? Won't that be tough for Vinehout to overcome? My guess is Vinehout wins outstate in a primary, but I'm not sure about Milwaukee-what do you think?

    •  Thanks rosa for your insight (3+ / 0-)

      and for the link. Bookmarked for my future reading beyond the piece.

      No bailouts, no handouts, and no copouts.
