    see him put his money where his mouth is. By money I mean his putting political capital, his considerable power as the president and head of the D party and start implementing some real populist economic policy that helps workers, instead of providing the multinationals with slave labor.

    Maybe firing Immelt's ass as job czar and stop with the lousy free trade treaties, would be a good start. Trust busting and some real regulation would also help. How can he cut deals with the RW maniac's in DC, the ones who are currently bargaining away workers 'entitlement's' or the right to affordable health care that's actually affordable.  

    Easy to talk about putting on your comfortable shoes but when all policy and direction of policy is geared to maximize the profits of the too bigs I find it hard to get exited about his pro-union rhetoric. Nothing he can really do? bs. Labor and workers globally are just a fluid cheap labor source for the wealth creators he believes are the way forward.
