What makes you think Dems would be for it? There are a whole lot of corporate Dems in Congress. None-the-less, unions should never have stopped trying to get rid of it. It was only after (many) unions became corrupt little fiefdoms that they gave up.

Well why in the world do you think it should be a priority when you think it has even less chance of becoming a law than do?

That's the heart. Everything is about being pragmatic. Let's nominate sucky candidates because they have the best chance of winning. Let's let economic concerns dictate our domestic and global activity because that way we'll remain strong. Let's only fight battles we're sure we can win.

You fight because it's the right thing to do.

Why should a union waste money campaigning for something they know has absolutely no chance of passing in the next few decades? The have an obligation to their members to not waste funds on pipe dreams.

Because it takes time to convince a lot of people, and some things are worth repeating.
