    Default Despite conflicts, labor unions back Obama

    Labor’s arm’s-length alliance with Obama is the result of clashes over foreign trade agreements, his negotiations with Republicans on budget cuts and deficit reduction, and the selection of North Carolina, a so-called right-to-work state with the lowest union membership rate in the country, as the site of the Democratic convention.

    “It’s not been all sweetness and light for labor with Obama, but he’s been their guy,” said David Gergen, an administrator and professor at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government who served in Republican and Democratic White Houses. “They’ve got a vested interest in his success.”

    The Obama campaign is relying heavily now on its vaunted ground game, Gergen said, and “labor has always been important for Democrats in terms of the ground game. The question is whether they’ll be as helpful as in the past.”

    Or we could pick RMoney, because we all know how MUCH he supports and loves unions...

    Obama isn't the best answer - but he's lightyears ahead of the alternative. If Myth gets in, welcome back to the days of the robber barons...and every ugly thing that that implies.
