OSHKOSH, Wis. -- At the datelines will tell you, I'm in Wisconsin for most of the week, reporting on the first few days of the real recall campaign -- the period after the Democrats pick their nominee against Scott Walker. This will mean a lot of time behind the wheel of a car, which will, in turn, mean slightly less regular blog content for a few hours at a time. As ever, follow @daveweigel on your Twitter machine.
