….Mary Burke, the likely Democratic candidate for governor, will not meet or stand alongside President Obama today when he visits Waukesha. That is a political blunder.
I know there are some who will try to spin her absence as due to previous commitments that she needed to attend to, and could not break. There are the stories about how poll numbers in Wisconsin show President Obama is not as strong today as a candidate for state office would like, and so a photo taken will be used by Republicans in some negative ad.
But I am not buying those arguments. And Mary Burke should not have either….
