Why do I say that? Because the national party, the inside-the-Beltway professionals running the Democratic National Committee, has been ignoring Wisconsin. Instead of seeing the vibrant grassroots movement as a way to re-energize voters in general, the DNC's been looking the other way. While Republican backers, like the infamous Koch brothers, pour money into Wisconsin to try to keep Walker in office, the DNC can't be bothered. A recall of Walker would scare the bejesus out of every other Republican politician in the country, but Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (current DNC chair) is too dense to see that. If the DNC isn't willing to fight now for Wisconsin's Democrats, why on earth should anyone in Wisconsin bother to support the national ticket (i.e., Obama) in the fall?
