Barack Obama made a lot of hay over the support he received from Warren Buffett, one of the richest men in the world and a stock-market savant.

Card Check would be an unmitigated disaster for the economy even in the best of times. As we reported last week, it’s an exponentially worse disaster during a severe recession.  Even an Obama supporter like Buffett understands that much.

Ben Smith thinks this might be a body blow for Card Check, defining it as an effort to kill secret ballots. Let’s hope.
