Default What does Wisconsin recall vote mean?

I admit to being pleasantly surprised by these results. From all the talk in activist circles, and seeing how energized the left was months ago, I thought that this vote was a done deal. I assumed that the Dems would win at least 3, probably 4, and then lose most of those seats again in 2012 (I didn't think they would be able to hold them in a normal election).

To me, the take away is either the Wisconsin/National union political apparatus has been severely weakened, or that the national/Wisconsin Tea Party movement is highly motivated. Either way, this seems to say that any attempt to recall Walker is a waste of time and money. The Dems would be better served just trying to win actual elections.
