The blog world has been a buzz this week:
Re: the potential return of Tommy Thompson to WI politics. Journal Sentinel bloggers Spivak and Bice have gone so far in their support of Tommy, as to criticize Charlie Sykes for saying Tommy's time has come and gone. I would love to see Tommy come back to WI politics and challenge Herb Kohl, but as far as a governorship, I agree with Charlie. Mark Green has been touted by the right as the next governor of WI, since Doyle won.
As firmly as I was behind Scott Walker, now it is time to back Green and acknowledge him as the rightful owner of the Republican nomination for Governor in 06. We must stand united as a party. Spivak and Bice seem to support a primary battle (which I happen to agree with in concept) but for that to be the case, we need to have an earlier primary. Otherwise, like Tim Michels and Scott Walker came to realize, you spend all of your money winning the primary and have nothing left in the final 6 weeks to defeat your TRUE opponent, the liberal incumbent. Tim Michels (another great man I worked my tail off for) feel victim to this circumstance and was left attacked in the final days by Feingold's commercials every 10 seconds on the TV. Sadly, the same may have happened to Walker.
So, support Mark Green for Governor, and Tommy for another office. His time for Governor has, in fact, passed.
