    for his Foundation work. Also, has some good juice from Hillary, who is loved by Centrists.

          Thanks, ever so, for understanding that's where I come from here.

          And also, in my small way, to illuminate to all we Democrats, how much we can disagree about whether Obama should come to Wisconsin or not, and how well we ALL speak up for our opinions.  It's a microcosm of the larger battle.

          And, as I've said over and over again in this diary, good to fold that into our individual judgments.  That many here who we admire, might disagree with us on this.  And, I speak for those WHO HAVE taken a stand.  I'm still straddling that position, like mad, as my fellow smart kossacks here have only underlined why I'm so split on this. They have underlined how complex this is, and I have arrived at no sense of what's unarguably, "right."

          And I'm Ok with that.  I don't need to have all the answers. Actually, I think that's part of my humility, which I'm always in a battle with.

          But what I'd like the outcome of this diary to be is that we all realize we're as different and as alike as we can be.  To make room for that.  Both in Wisconsin, and in the nation, come November.
