Bad news for Hillary

This just in from CNN: The Teamsters is about to become the third major labor organization in a week to endorse Barack Obama for president:

So much for her taking up the mantle of big labor from John Edwards.

The Teamsters join the SEIU and the United Food and Commercial Workers Union, which endorsed Obama last week, and the Culinary Workers Union, which endorsed him on the eve of the Nevada caucuses.

One has to wonder whether this is indicative of the way Edwards' personal endorsement -- and, perhaps, his 26 delegates -- will go.

Remember that bit in the last post about the deck chairs on the Titanic? For Clinton, the (iceberg) hits just keep on comin'.
