It seems also clear that many employees benefit from the success of Heinz also....why punish them?
That same argument could be used to justify anything. For example, "If we don't vote for Kerry, all of his staff will lose their jobs. Why punish them?
But if it makes you feel better, think of it like this: by switching to another brand of catsup, you'll be helping THEIR employees.

We buy ketchup from another mfr, they need new employees, so they hire the Heinz employees.

(You can't reason people out of a position that they didn't use reason to get into in the first place)
I think these kinds of boycotts are foolish, as they in no way will really do much harm to Kerry. It is naive to think that he would bow out of the race because no one eats Heinz products? All it would do harm to is the employees and other stock holders. Just let your vote tell him how you feel.

You really do not see the difference? These are political employees; they are Kerry's companions.
People at Heinz do work that has nothing to do with politics. Inquire after the products they make -- it's not political posters.
