    If walker wins now, sure he would beat Barret again in 2014, but the problem here is Barrett (and Falk and Lafollette) is a retread.

    Walker could be beaten in 2014 by a new (to a Gov race), more compelling candidate.  Examples might be Kind, Feingold, Baldwin, Kagen, etc.

    Wisconsin likes to vote for popular Democrats, like Kohl and Proxmire.  Republicans can beat middlingly popular Democrats.  Walker is not the key.  The key is finding a Kohl-like candidate to oppose him in 2014.

    Mr. Gorbachev, establish an Electoral College!

    •  Kagen is not compelling. (0+ / 0-)

      He was swept in on the Blue Tide of '06, re-elected because of Obama in 2008, and promptly swept out on the Red Tide of 2010.

      Kind could beat Walker in '14. Feingold could beat Scoot anytime.

      Kind should think about running against Johnson in 2016.
      Someday in the future.

      Farm boy who hit the city to go to college, WI-03 (home, voting), WI-02 (college), -7.88, -4.26, 6/5/2012- the day the great error of Wisconsin history will be corrected!
