Checkers & Chess
Those who enjoyed the political commentary found in VITAL Source Magazine might remember Checkers and Chess, a column that featured two commentators exploring one idea from radically different viewpoints. We figure that now is a perfect time to relaunch the feature, what with political race season beginning, budgets under fire and our region’s political, social and economic future in transition once again.
Don’t look here for the news: this is all about gloves-off debate, and as Checkers & Chess matures, you’ll see our columnists going head-to-head on the hot-button issues of the day.
This week: with word that U.S. Rep. Ron Kind (D-WI) bowed out of the 2010 gubernatorial race on Thursday before he ever really entered it, TCD pundits Patti Wenzel and Ted Bobrow couldn’t wait to weigh in. See their takes and projections on who will continue forward to become the next governor of Wisconsin.

In the blue corner: Bobrow wonders who has the fortitude to win this race
