    Default Hoffa: Teamsters Endorse Keith Ellison for DNC Chair

    Interesting. Bernie's pick.
    (WASHINGTON) – The following is a statement by Teamsters General President Jim Hoffa:

    “Today, the International Brotherhood of Teamsters endorsed Rep. Keith Ellison to lead the Democratic National Committee. Rep. Ellison is a strong voice for working families and labor.

    "It is time for the Democratic Party to get back to its roots and focus on the issues that matter most to workers – jobs, health care and retirement security. Rep. Ellison is a proven organizer who knows that these battles are won in the field, not the corridors of Washington.

    “In order to remain a relevant force in American politics, the Democratic National Committee must change direction and not take any of its natural constituencies for granted.

    “Rep. Ellison understands the challenges that lie ahead and will enact the changes necessary for the Democratic Party to once again lead the fight for working families.”

    I disagree. I think the problem with the party has been that in areas of labor they have not been far enough to the left in recent times. They have been too in the middle and cozy with the corporations.

    There is a whole lot of difference between being in the middle compared to being cozy with Management..
