    during the recall process, Puddy.  Really leaned towards the idea he would be a distraction to the causes that needed to get the headlines.  

    Now I'm divided on it, as I said.  Very interesting for me to get all this feed back, and it's like I'm on a teeter totter---yes! No!, Yes, No! LOL.  Lots of good points here.

    I definitely would like to see more Democratic surrogate action in Wisconsin.  Biden and Clinton both seem like great possibilities.

      Dem on the same plane, landing, and going to work!!!

      Good media opportunity/good crowd energizer.

      but the least Obama could do is loosen up some DNC cash for us.  He's the head of the party and he has an entire state he could lose.

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

        And yet, I'm not at all sure how much power Obama has over DNC cash.  Not making excuses for him, just not sure of how these lines get drawn.  

        I know you struggle with Obama, and that's Ok with me.  I look forward to many discussions with you about this, once the Wisconsin recall is WON.  

        And even if we disagree as our road stretches out, I hope Puddy, that the conversation between you and I will always continue.  You were the first person on this site who took an interest in me, and taught me a few things.  Like how not to call it a "democrat cause," but rather a "democratic cause," and why.

        Have you noticed how much better I've gotten at this? LOL.
        Anyway, dear, I consider you a mentor, and I hope even after all is said and done in Wisconsin, you and I will continue our conversations...where we agree, and where we don't.
