Wisconsin Supreme Court race highlights political divide

The headline:  Wis. top court election adds fuel to ‘powder keg’

The summary:  Sharp reaction and opinion has highlighted the Wisconsin Supreme Court race as JoAnne Kloppenburg claims victory and the state prepares for recounts.

The reaction:  This election seems to have highlighted the sharp divide over the rights of unions to collectively bargain not only in Wisconsin but across the nation.  Supreme Court justice nominees usually are able to get re-elected but Kloppenburg was able to come out of the shadows to seemingly win the post.  I’m sure we’ll be hearing a lot more about this in the coming weeks.
