Did the Supreme Court’s Decision in Citizens United Help Liberal/Progressive Causes in the 2012 Election Cycle?

(The article emphasizes that although unions did whatever they could to take advantage of Citizens United, political directors of key labor Super PACs dislike the decision and would love to see it overruled.)
