From today’s Chicago Sun-Times:

WASHINGTON — The AFL-CIO’s Democratic Aug. 7 presidential forum in Chicago will be a mega-event now — at Soldier Field, with up to 15,000 people expected.

It will also be a dramatic, visual display of the strength of union members, one of the most important Democratic constituent groups.

Wow, that’s a big crowd. Puts a lot of pressure on union organizers, eh?
