One to watch... Scott Walker

  • Print

They tried to take him out as the head cheesehead of Wisconsin, but Republican Scott Walker is still standing after becoming the first U.S. governor to survive a recall election.

The much-hyped vote -- sparked after the tea-party-supported fiscal conservative took on a union-busting agenda -- is already stirring the electoral waters far beyond the borders of America's dairyland. And to be sure, U.S. President Barack Obama and his Democrats are reading the tea leaves and wondering what Walker's win means for this fall's battle for the White House.

As for the governor of a state still deeply divided, well, Walker has a plan that apparently involves using bratwurst and beer for some fence-mending with all members of the legislature as soon as next week. "The first step is just bringing people together and figuring out some way if we can thaw the ice," Walker said.
