That’s right, if Scott Walker retains his governorship, the media will suddenly find that this recall election really doesn’t mean a thing.
Now, this is a far different narrative as we stand pre-election day. The media has been calling this election an important bellwether for unionism. They have said that this election has excited unions and driven them to the streets in an important show of unanimity.
The election has also been called a trial run for the November presidential election one that might act as a guidepost of what will happen with Obama vs. Romney.
But all that speculation will utterly disappear if Walker wins his recall election.
