Chamber of Commerce vs The People
Thom Hartmann and others have been talking about it. I googled and found several good articles about how the Chamber President Tom Donohue is determined to spend over $60 million in the 2008 Elections to defeat populist candidates. (Why do you think Big Media refuses to cover John Edwards?) For a good overview, see the AFL-CIO weblog piece Chamber of Commerce vs. Populists. Donahue said, "We plan to build a grassroots business organization so strong that when it bites you in the butt, you bleed."
