One of the things I most dislike about most politicians is their unwillingness to admit when they’ve screwed up.
Take Dennis Williams, the leader of the United Auto Workers union. He and his lieutenants were so out of touch with the membership that they negotiated a contract that the angry workers rejected by almost two to one.
Yesterday, when the results were in, Williams said. “We don’t consider this a setback,” we consider this “part of the process.”
