The Walker Phenomenon the NYT Skips

Walter Russell Mead has a nice post on Scott Walker's coalition in Wisconsin--you  remember Wisconsin, don't you?  Where the public sector unions, Democrats and Liberals (but I repeat myself) have gathered to "recall" the man who is putting the state back on its feet?  It occurs to me that Wisconsin may once again be showing itself as the shape of things to come--similar to the role it played early in the last century.  There, it was a "progressive" movement that sought to reshape the political landscape.  This time, conservatives hold the whip hand.
