I would love to see it but I am skeptical at best. This source doesn't strike me as particuarly trustworthy either.

It's just noise. They may cut back on spending for Democrats and you may see support having to be won by individual candidates rather then given in a knee jerk fashion. The reality is, where else are the unions going to go? To the republicans, a third party maybe?

Where else are the dems going to go? This is probably just hot air but you never know. We could be at a turning point. When the Reagan democrats decided they wanted a guy who was "tough" they changed the political landscape. Maybe there will be an abrupt change soon.

It's not so much the votes the Democrats are going to loose, it's the union money.

True.

The Teamsters knew this would happen but what do they know, they're only truck drivers, right?

Word on the street is that Trumka is going to get a job as a greeter at Walmart
