I like Erpenbach a lot, but I think a liberal is inappropriate for this task.
There is some backlash out there among moderate voters against the whole idea of a recall, they may dislike Walker, but are unsure his hard ball ways rise to the level of a removable offense. If a liberal politician is running, it looks more like the recall is just about political philosophy, the sore losers don't want to abide by the results of a fair election.
Cullen diffuses the sore loser argument. He is about civility, compromise, and that contrasts sharply with Walker's heavy-handedness.
