Obama's campaign is media-savvy enough to know how to dangle "short list" people in front of the press and then dramatically announce someone else who they'll then have to (re)introduce to the public, analyze, and discuss ad nauseam.
The "Shame on CNA" campaign crap DOES NOT HELP the labor movement.
I have no dog in that fight, but I know what CNA has accomplished and what SEIU has accomplished, and I know I saw dozens of anti-CNA ads from SEIU before I saw a single one from CNA responding to SEIU's attacks. Why such ugly tactics against the union that has kept Arnold Schwarzenegger in check?
also, Ed Schultz is not very bright, and not very articulate, and not very funny, so why the F does he have a radio show? oh, right, he's from the "heartland" so he's our Trojan Horse into the red states. except that he's not very bright, not very articulate, and not very funny. i wish there were something else on between Hartmann and Maddow on my local station.
I would bet my last dime that the most vocal clowns in the audience are NOT acting on behalf of either Democratic candidate. Just because they call themselves "Clinton supporters" or "Obama supporters" doesn't mean they're not dittohead trolls trying to keep the sh!t stirred as long as they can.
