ABSTRACT
The article comments on the plan of American Federation of Labor & Congress of Industrial Organization (AFL-CIO) president Lane Kirkland to get involved in the Democratic Party primaries. The AFL-CIO likes to endorse Democratic presidential candidates but since they were not involved in the Democratic Party primaries they had to vote Republican in 1952, 1956 and 1980. Their inclusion in the primaries will enable them to have a say in the party's choice before the nominating convention. It is viewed the AFL-CIO decision will means that the Democratic Party will officially become the AFL-CIO party.
