Century of the Common Iowan: Importance of Union Endorsements and Key Endorsements Left to Be Won

Excerpted from this post at Century of the Common Iowan

Marc Ambinder has a couple posts up about union endorsements. First,
he writes about the key endorsements that are left to be given out:
"1. Former vice president Al Gore. He's said he'll endorse. Last
cycle, he picked Howard Dean during the second week of December. 2.
Former presidential candidate John Kerry. Here's betting that John
Edwards will NOT get this one..." In Iowa, I think the UAW endorsement
is very big. Some think Culver's UAW endorsement is what won him the
Democratic primary for Governor last year and propelled him to beating
Nussle. Obama has an advantage for the UAW endorsement because
Illinois is included with Iowa when they make their regional
endorsements.
