Given current events in Wisconsin and President Obama’s immediate move to back the unions, I thought you might be interested to take a look at this video, which shows Obama talking to members of the Service Employees International Union as a candidate on January 15, 2008. It looks like Obama is in Nevada speaking a few days before the caucus there.
Just look at the passion and the commitment. I don’t know of any other recent major Democratic presidential candidate who could muster up such visceral commitment to the union cause. The president is one with labor, and his support for the public unions at the state level is not just a tactic to appease the Left.
