One Down

When I wrote my Case Against Obama I briefly mentioned his expected support for "Card-Check" a union-supported measure which would remove secret ballot votes on questions of unionization. It seems fundamentally undemocratic to remove a secret ballot, as this would expose such questions to coercion and potentially abusive practices.

With a public statement by Republican Senator Arlen Spector that he would not support Card-Check the initiative may be dead.

This is a big win.
