Union activists hope that when Hilda Solis is confirmed as Labor Secretary, she'll take some cues from the innovative, tough-minded prosecution in Los Angeles.
Rep. Solis has been forced to wait and watch while a few Republican Senators try to make political hay of her husband's small business tax woes.
