Krauthammer: Effect of Recall is on Big Labor
Krauthammer says the Wisconson recall won't have a big impact on the presidential election, saying the impact will be on the national move to pullback on union power and unreasonable benefits.
The big issue is not this election, it's the grrowth of the public employee unions, and they are swallowing up the governments that they are supposed to serve, and this is the beginning of a pushback which I think will be really longterm... you'll see it all across the country.
Mark Shields questions Krauthammer's assertion that WIsconsin is a blue state, suggesting the recall is part of a long string of events that indicate otherwise.
Charles talks blithely about it being a blue state, both John Kerry and Al Gore carried Wisconsin by fewer than 12,000 votes....
