Obama and the GOP Both Want to Pass Anti-Worker Trade Deals. Which Dems Will Oppose Them?

Since the election on Tuesday, both Obama and Mitch McConnell have highlighted trade as a potential source of bipartisanship. Obama has been negotiating two large trade deals--the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TTP) and the Trans-Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP). Harry Reid has been hostile to these deals so far---and rightfully so, given that they are major corporate giveaways that would be bad for the environment, workers, and democracy. But Republicans, unsurprisingly, love them.

Over at the Daily Kos, I look at which Democrats we can count on to oppose such trade deals (and, implicitly, which we cannot and need to work on).
