I didn’t watch any coverage of tonight’s recall election in Wisconsin, so forgive me if this point has been made. Forgive me as well for offering a note of caution about the results, particularly since it may be off-base.
My note of caution is this: Gov. Walker’s victory may be due in part to the fact that the economy in Wisconsin has picked up and that Wisconsin’s unemployment rate is considerably below the national average. Might not Wisconsin’s comparatively healthy economy be a plus for Obama in November, as it presumably was a plus for Walker tonight?
