Dean Again

If, for some strange reason, you have not been closely following events related to the race for the Democratic nomination for president, you might not know that Howard Dean’s stars seem to be lining up for good. Specifically, two of the largest and most powerful unions in America, the Service Employees International Union and the American Federation of State, County, and Municipal employees are set to endorse him. I won’t go into the details, but you can find them in the Washington Post or New York Times – this is big. And if you have not, take a moment to read “Organization Man” in the November 17th edition of The New Republic. Food for thought.
