Iowa Labor to Obama: SEIU Later


He has a pulse.

John Edwards today received the Iowa's local SEIU endorsement, and will reportedly be inundated with a small wave of similar state endorsements later today. This is big news for Edwards because the Iowa endorsement gives him a small army of foot-soldiers to rally the faithful on caucus day.

The rules announced last week also allow for SEIU members from other states endorsing Edwards to descend on the Hawkeye State. SEIU members from neighboring Illinois, Obama country, are now blocked from the caucus process.

With both men staking their fortunes on the first-in-the-nation contest, this is bad news for Barack.
