Popular Progressive: Edwards: Will He or Won't He Walk the Line?
Excerpted from this post at Popular Progressive
In August, before the Daily Kos convention, John Edwards walked the
line with striking hotel workers in Chicago. With 73,000 of the UAW
striking against General Motors, the question is, will Edwards join
them too? Earlier this month in Des Moines Edwards is quoted as having
said, ``I want to be the president who walks down the White House lawn
and says the word union, who walks down the White House lawn and makes
certain that America understands the importance of the organized labor
movement in the history of America.'' Edwards also said he has shown
his support for labor and ``over 200 times over the past few years I
have walked picket lines, worked personally in organizing campaigns,
worked with employers to get them to open the process of union
organizing in their personal business.''
