It’s starting to feel like the presidential election has come down to this: Which candidate is riskier?

And here comes the AFL-CIO with this pronouncement: “John McCain’s Plan Puts Retirees at Risk.” That’s from a mailer sent to 500,000 retirees in Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin, Colorado, Indiana, Minnesota, North Carolina and Florida. It labels McCain as a “disaster” for retirees; not too long ago, another AFL-CIO mailer dubbed him a “disaster” for the middle class.

The labor federation’s ranks are also continuing phone calls and personal visits to undecided voters. They’re clearly not taking any risks.
