More coverage from the AFL-CIO convention

Money quote:
"I hope that after this is over we can get Joe Lieberman, all of us, even the ones that get along greatly with Joe, and beat the s--t out of him."
People, that quote was from a Lieberman supporter...

Lamontblog points to an article from New York Times reporter William Yardley which reports that the vote to endorse Lieberman was pretty close.
After the vote, Mr. Olsen was asked whether the "nays," which were not far below the "yeas" in volume, suggested that labor leaders were split over the endorsement, and he noted that no one had challenged the vote after it was completed.
I think it's fair to say that not all union members are big fans of team Joementum.

Thank the fearless Spazeboy for the video.
