I am very, very proud of Wisconsin today.
This was an unprecedented effort that fell just short, but it was more than worth the effort.

And I'm willing to bet a very old bottle of scotch that it's not over yet.

Gov. Walker, you're next.

Here's to Wisconsin, and to the people there we should all use as role models.

:hug:

3. I am also.
They stood up for Labor and what they believed was right. How could anyone not be proud of such a movement?

Wisconsin should be an example to all of us in this country.

5. We did not win the ultimate victory yesterday, but Republicans have to be nervous.
Democrats won 2 victories in 6 races all against Republican incumbents. That is a big achievement and it shows what we can do when we work hard and Democrats come out in great numbers and vote.

We need to keep up the enthusiasm and the hard work and build on these victories in the battle to recall Walker. In collecting the signatures needed we will need to do things exactly, having all the i's dotted and the t's crossed.

One thing we do need is to have a big name and well respected person to run against Walker. If Russ Feingold were to announce he would do that, then the recall signatures would pour in and Walker would have a tough time against Feingold when Democrats show up and vote.

At least I can be happy here in La Crosse that Jen Shilling won and we booted out Kapanke.

6. I concur...we took 2 of 6 solidly rethug districts...
...I think that bodes well for the future (except for Scott Walker - his time is running out)...

7. It was a big hill to climb,; unfortunately, I don't see Walker getting recalled.
There are too many idiots, even in Wisconsin.

8. I am too Will
They fought back, didn't back down and showed us all what we need to be doing.

The country could learn a lot by watching what is happening in Wisconsin.

11. Koch Bros spent $30-50 mil and lost two seats.
That is victory for Wisconsin in my book.
