Clinton endorsed by SMART union
LAS VEGAS - Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Rodham Clinton on Saturday accepted the endorsement of a 230,000-member labor group that will soon be formed through a merger.

SMART, the International Association of Sheet Metal, Air, Rail and Transportation Workers, will merge the Sheet Metal Workers' International Association and the United Transportation Union in January. The New York senator had previously received the endorsement of the transportation union, which is the larger of the merging unions with 125,000 active and retired members in the railroad, bus and public transit industries.

6. So the multiple Unions that endorsed either Obama or Edwards is dumb to you?

Figures a Clinton supporter would make swipes at other unions not supporting their candidate.

7. One of two Democratic presidential candidates in the election of 1860
Stephen Douglas was the other, on the ballot in the North. Breckenridge was on the ballot in the South. He had been Buchanan's veep, was later a Confederate general and was the last Confederate Secretary of War.
