McGovern and the card check legislation

The May 13 issue of Politico carries an article by Ben Smith about George McGovern's public opposition to the Employee Free Choice Act, which "would give workers the option of joining a union by signing cards rather than by voting in a secret ballot." Smith notes that McGovern, in a Wall Street Journal op-ed, compared his opposition to the legislation to "my early and lonely opposition to the Vietnam War."

It's too late in the evening to write at any length about this, but I find it really quite sad.
