Emily Ekins on Why the Wisconsin Recall Is Not a Harbinger for the 2012 Presidential Election

The recall results also do not portend public union denunciation. Instead, this week's recall showdown presages much-needed reform throughout the country. Thanks to Scott Walker's victory, more governors will now tackle the problems associated with public sector unions.
