    They have to be courted like any other supporter. Lincoln had her chance, and may even get one more.

    What more can you ask?

      I agree. The Dems can't take labor votes for granted. However, there is a long history of union bashing and organized labor hating sentiment in the south coupled with right to work laws that will never in my lifetime be repealed. It's political suicide here in TN for any politician to mention the words 'union' without being branded communist, marxist, traitor, etc.

      How does the union overcome the south's cultural animosity? The hatred is so damned entrenched.

        Point out the inequity and injustice that corps are creating and enforcing every day. Wait until the working folk won't take it any more.

        Is there another way?
