Baldwin lauds accomplishments despite inherited 'mess'

Saying she hoped to carry "just as big a stick" as the retiring Dave Obey in the next Congress, U.S. Rep. Tammy Baldwin of Madison launched into Republicans over the state the country was in as Dems took over the federal government in 2008.

"It was not our mess, it was theirs," Baldwin said, recalling a flailing economy and two destructive wars. "We cannot let other people get away with rewriting history on this point."

Baldwin conceded that midterms generally aren't kind to the president's party, and acknowledged that the Democrats haven't been as loud or intense as Tea Party groups.

"This must change if we want to win in November," Baldwin said. "And we must win."
