So Now Who Calls the Shots?

In the wake of the presidential firing of GM's CEO, now the head of the SEIU is demanding that President Obama fire the CEO of Bank of America.  So what now -- government at the behest of union bosses?

After the Wagoner firing, my question is this: Would there ever be a time the President would show the political courage (or ideological independence) to fire the president of a union?

After all, excessive labor costs are a top reason that American car companies are struggling to stay competitive.  So why does the CEO of GM go, and the union chief of the UAW remain?

Aside from this, of course?
