Rich Trumka Understands

"The class war has been on, except my class has been losing."

trumka2 This is one reason why I want to see this man run for president. Working class boy, manual laborer, college-educated, knows how to explain complicated ideas to everyday people, never forgot what it felt like to struggle to make a decent living for a family, and is on the side of the powerless. A powerful, charismatic leader with a down-to-earth demeanor and a sincere determination to break down the wall of the gated economic community, and understands how to deal with that community without being captured by it.

Those jumped-up pseudo-populists would never stand a chance.

And yes, I'm a union member, of the dreaded SEIU. I only wish the whole country could enjoy the benefits of being union workers, too.
