    Labor flexes muscle as '08 race heats up - By McClatchy Newspapers
    Last week, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, D-N.Y., won the support of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers along with that of the United Transportation Union. In a surprise, Sen. Christopher Dodd, D-Conn., picked up the endorsement of the International Association of Firefighters, and former North Carolina senator John Edwards won the backing of the United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners.

    While there is debate on the power of endorsements, the efforts of the candidates suggest they still matter. It seems as if would-be presidential candidates have been courting union leaders since the last election ended. If anything, those early results suggest there is no consensus 'labor candidate,' in the Democratic field.
