  •  Way premature at best. (9+ / 0-)

    Walker won by 6 points in the biggest GOP year in modern history, then by 7 in what was in hindsight an ill-advised recall.  In the meantime, Dems gained three State Senate seats through recalls.  Let's wait for a general election that ISN'T in the biggest GOP year in modern history before we pronounce the patient dead.  Who knows, you might be suprised...

      were against the recall process itself?

      Also, I know a lot of people disagree, but I really believe that if Walker had tried to end the collective bargaining process for all state workers, he'd have lost the recall battle. There's a certain segment that will always vote Republican, but I suspect enough people would have been chipped away to make him fail.

      It's entirely possible we might end up in such a position in a few years. If/when that happens, perhaps enough public workers will unite to bounce these clowns from office.
