You might be impressed that 274 people are following me on Twitter. Until you know that 265 of them think I am someone else.

Gov. Scott Walker evidently has embarked on the long road to the White House, and like it or not, the state of Wisconsin will bear the effects. Whether he continues to do what is best for Wisconsin or what is best for his presidential aspirations already has been called into question.
