Obama, Clinton and the working class

clipped from

With an eye to Saturday's Democratic caucus, the largest labor union in the state of Washington, Service Employee's International Union (SEIU), announced on Wednesday its endorsement of Barack Obama.

I called Adam Glickman, spokesman for SEIU Local 775, to ask him whether the Obama endorsement might be working at cross purposes to the union membership.

I think our members feel he is the best candidate to bring change to Washington
Exit poll data from Super Tuesday seems to indicate pretty conclusively that Clinton got the working-class vote.
the vote among our executive board was virtually unanimous to support Obama
If you're looking for concrete details of exactly how Clinton plans to lend a helping hand to beleaguered working men and women, you don't have to search far
The less income you make, the more likely you are to vote for Clinton. Unless you're African-American.
