I wrote in this space some time ago about my disdain for the abandonment of Gov. Howard Dean by some who had endorsed him. Without naming any specific organizations again, it seemed a bit opportunistic to jump on the Dean bandwagon when it was heating up and then jump off when things started to look less rosy.

That makes it all the more fun to applaud the International Association of Fire Fighters for sticking with John Kerry even when things were tough.
