Stephen Diamond's latest post, Is Obama vulnerable in 2012? asks whether the Democratic Party machine will force Obama out of the Democratic primary for President. Two years is forever in U.S. politics so there's no way of knowing at this point whether there will be a successful insurrection. But Steve's essay provides an instructive look back at how the maneuvering on the Democrat Party's Left greatly weakened Jimmy Carter's presidential reelection bid. Steve, who is an expert on U.S. labor unions, also does a rundown on how major unions are looking at Obama at this time. A must-read for political junkies.
