Dems to end secret-ballot union elections

If there's a Democratic president, cue the interest groups

A Democratic win in November would bring a wide swath of interest groups to Washington, lining up for payback. Unions would be first in line. National unions likely will spend more than double the $160 million they spent in the 2004 election. If they prevail, a system known as "card check" will banish secret-ballot elections as an organizing tool, making unionizing workers infinitely easier to manipulate. And that's just for starters.
