Schumer championed "fighting unions"

Oh I missed this from the other week. Schumer on Blanche Lincoln victory:
Sen. Chuck Schumer (N.Y.) held up two fists and said of her primary campaign: "Fighting Wall Street with one hand, unions with the other."
There was a time -- not all that along ago, I believe -- when a very high ranking Democratic legislator (from the Northeast no less) would not openly make such a blanket attack on organized labor.
