The NEA's presidential campaign is in full swing as it parades Democratic nominees across the platform at its convention. As you can see from the grid I've posted below though, the rank and file are in a tough spot. Every Democratic candidate running seems to be in lock-step with the union.

NEA members, along with the entire nation, are waiting with baited breath to see which candidate NEA top bosses endorse. Don't expect the verdict anytime soon though. Last time around, 2004, a major union suffered a major embarrassment when it endorsed Wesley Clark, who didn't survive the primary. As you can imagine, John Kerry didn't take kindly to the union, severely limiting its sphere of influence.

I think you are confused. Which 'major union' supposedly endorsed Clark in 04?

Actually, it was mostly unions endorsing Dean who were so embarrassed. SEIU and AFSCME come to mind. They haven't gotten over it yet.
