Obama, Edwards to address union-backed Wake Up Wal-Mart

Senator Barack Obama must be seriously considering a 2008 presidential run. His fellow Democrat, former Senator John Edwards is generally assumed to running in 2008.

Tomorrow, both men will be playing up to the hard-left (remember them?) Democratic base by participating in a conference call with Wake Up Wal-Mart.

That group is a fully-funded project of the United Food & Commercial Workers. Wal-Mart's stores are non-union, but so are the stores of its chief competitor, Target.

Wake-Up Wal-Mart is headed by Paul Blank, the former national political director of Howard Dean's failed presidential campaign.

This past summer, Wake Up Wal-Mart organized a bus tour across the country to spread its anti-Wal-Mart message. At many of the stops, Democratic politicians attended rallies that accompanied the bus tour.

So it's hard to see where the United Food & Commercial Workers, Wake Up Wal-Mart, and the Democratic Party begin and end.
