No, because below a congenial surface, Baldwin is pretty out there.

Somehow, Tammy Baldwin managed to convince Wisconsin voters six years ago that four-term governor Tommy Thompson of Elroy, son of a small-town grocer, was a carpetbagger working out of a K-Street lobbyist’s office in Washington, D.C.
My old boss had exhausted his treasury fending off deep-pocketed primary opponents and could not respond. Tammy and her surrogates will throw the same kind of shade against Republican opponent Leah Vukmir. Don’t underestimate Tammy Baldwin, a congenial personality but sharp-elbowed politician who sub contracts her dirty work to surrogates.
The Capital Times of Madison (“Your Progressive Voice”) has already vilified Vukmir as “a career politician.”
This would be the same Leah Vukmir who walked hospital floors for more than 20 years as a certified pediatric nurse. Leah entered politics only at age 44 when first elected to the state legislature in 2002.
By contrast, Tammy Baldwin started clambering up the greasy political pole just three years out of law school.
Tammy earned her 100 percent rating from Planned Parenthood by supporting unrestricted abortion now, today, and forever. Leah compiled a perfect voting record according to Pro-Life Wisconsin and Wisconsin Right to Life. Motherhood can do that.
