  •  One Tammy Baldwin (0+ / 0-)

    is worth about 5 run of the mill Democratic senators, in my opinion. I know she's less electable, but I feel like history is calling in a way that it would be a real shame to pass this up just because she's 10-20% less likely to win than someone like Kind. All seems very petty in the face of what a Senator Baldwin would actually mean for not just Democrats but America as a whole.

    "Every daring attempt to make a great change in existing conditions, every lofty vision of new possibilities for the human race, has been labeled Utopian."

    •  How is it petty? (0+ / 0-)

      I really don't think this can be looked upon in a vacuum. Walker has hurt Republicans but not to the extent Wisconsin has suddenly become New York or California. I still say she can win but I don't think it is worth the risk given the circumstances at large. I hope I'm proved wrong.
