Back when Barack Obama was campaigning for President, he stated that "If American workers are being denied their right to organize and collectively bargain when I'm in the White House, I'll put on a comfortable pair of shoes myself" and join them. In solidarity with nurses fighting for their collective bargaining rights in Wisconsin and other states, National Nurses United just offered to buy the president those shoes.

And they wouldn't even have to be white, sensible nurse shoes -- just so they help him stand firmly and show leadership. NNU Executive Director Rose Ann DeMoro says he can do this "by standing and walking with the workers, and working to repair the budget deficit with a just re-balancing of the responsibility of the corporate elite and the rich."
