Late Bill

So Bill Clinton will be visiting Wisconsin to lend a helping hand to Tom Barrett's campaign.  To quote a line from the movie The Taking of Pelham 1-2-3, "Terrific, tell him we'll hold the crowd till he gets here."

Really now, at the risk of being a smart ass - who me? - why not wait a little longer, say October?  A week to go before the single biggest state-wide election in quite some time and Bubba is just now making it out there.  Only the Democrats could screw up this kind of opportunity.

It's bad enough the DNC has done squat since Barrett won the Democratic primary, but to get a visit from the former 42nd President at this late stage, with most of the voters already in the decided column, now that's what I call rubbing it in.

The time to do all this and more was three weeks ago, when there was still enough time to make a difference.  You want a definition for political suicide?  Look up the election results for this state a week from now.

I heard Obama's first choice was to send Grover Cleveland.
