The Bankruptcy of Hope: Labor for Obama

Less than 15% of the US workforce is unionized. Such "labor" unions as are around tend to timidity and institutional support for the Democratic Party. This despite a history of betrayal of every true labor ideal by the Democrats. The most recent and egregious example of such betrayal is of course NAFTA. In this the best of all possible worlds for our glorious unions and the glorious union movement, many states continue to have so-called "right-to-work" laws, including Arizona, home to THE Patriot. How about a Labor Party instead?
