MILWAUKEE -- My latest piece takes you across Wisconsin as Democrats try not to screw up their sixth or seventh chance in 20 months to stop a conservative (not just Republican) takeover. I found a huge number of activists on the left who had been at the barricades of every recent battle. The occupation in Madison. The Supreme Court campaign. The first wave of Senate recalls, when Democrats needed three seats and won two. The heart-rending Walker recall campaign. And I found a smaller but more confident group of Republicans, who see the election in three weeks as the final Walkerfication of America.
