Consider this an Open Thread. To get things started:
“The International Association of Fire Fighters, one of the country’s more politically powerful unions, has abandoned its initial plans to endorse Hillary Rodham Clinton for president, according to union sources,” per the New York Times. It appears that the executive board did not approve of an endorsement, and a poll of rank and file members revealed the same.
Roy L. McGhee III, an I.A.F.F. board member, attributed Ms. Clinton’s sagging popularity to “the Republican attack machine [and] the media machine…” Well, Mr. McGhee, we think Hillary accomplished that all by herself.
