The leader of one of the country's biggest labor unions and a top ally of President Obama is stepping down.

Andy Stern, whose 2.2-million member Service Employees International Union spent about $60 million to help Obama win the presidency, is planning to resign as union president, according to a senior union official.

The news comes weeks after health care reform, one of Stern's longtime goals, cleared Congress and was signed into law by Obama. Stern, 59, has been a formidable force in Washington since well before the election -- aside from the money spent to boost Obama's candidacy, the SEIU also spent millions more on House and Senate races.

Stern visited the White House more than 20 times in the first six months of Obama's presidency alone. Obama also had named Stern as a member of his National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform in February.

Ahhhhh, we gotta love Andy. Who wouldn't love someone who says "we use the power of persuasion, and if that doesn't work, we use the persuasion of power". Charming individual.

If he's after the real money, he'll ask for an executive position at Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac.

That worked out very well for or Jamie "The Wall" Gorelick.
