Obama to hit Chicago picket line Monday
Obama to hit Chicago picket line Monday
by John McCormick

Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. Barack Obama is expected to walk a picket line in Chicago today.

His campaign has not yet released details, but his schedule has him in Chicago all day Monday. He also said this on Friday to the Las Vegas Sun:

"Next week Ill be walking a picket line in front of (Chicago's) Congress Hotel. Thats been the longest running fight for Unite Here across the country. Its been going on there for four years. Ive walked the picket line there before and Ill do it again."

Last month marked the fourth anniversary of the strike at South Michigan Avenue property, where housekeepers, dishwashers, bartenders and other employees are engaged in one of the longest-running ongoing strikes in the nation.

1. Good For Obama!
I wonder how many picket lines Edwards and Clinton have walked?
