Wal-Mart Robs DNC of Campaign Issue?

...So what I'm wondering is this:

Now that Wal-Mart has fully addressed on the Democrats favorite talking-points issues --how are they going to continue to vilify them?

Kerry, Dean, Clinton et al have been claiming to care about poor people getting their hands on their prescriptions for years. Was it a political party that offered a real solution to this problem? No. It was NON-UNIONIZED Wal-Mart that will now be offering generic drugs for $4.00

"...Wal-Mart plans to begin selling nearly 300 generic prescription drugs for a sharply reduced price, offering a big lure for bargain-seeking customers and presenting a challenge to competing pharmacy chains.

The world's biggest retailer said Thursday that it will test its sales program, in which 291 generic drugs will be sold at $4 for a month's supply, in Florida. The drugs involved provide treatments for conditions ranging from allergies to high-blood pressure..." (source)

Did Wal-Mart just steal one of the DNC's biggest campaign issues on top of having the audacity to snub its nose at the AFL-CIO? ...And with gas prices falling? I guess it's back to Iraq and Katrina.
