SEIU screening Dem candidates for president

One of the nation's largest labor unions is the Service Employees International Union. SEIU represents many government workers, so it suffered from the contractions in membership that other labor unions are suffering through.

So it's a big player in Democratic politics, as the Dems are viewed as more friendly to labor.

Today and tomorrow, eight presidential candidates, two via feed, will be presenting explaining their stances to the sixty members of the SEIU executive council, but no SEIU endorsement is expected to come out of these meetings.

Here's the part I like:

From AP:

The meetings Friday and Saturday are closed to the public and the media.

Gee, I'm sure the two million members dues-paying members of the SEIU are impressed.
