Richard Trumka on Obama and Race

Richard Trumka, a former United Mine Workers official who's now the Secretary-treasurer of the AFL-CIO, discusses Barack Obama and the issue of race at the Democratic National Convention. He argues that the unions are in a position to change their members' minds and to stress class solidarity over race. "We need to get the message out that a worker who votes for John McCain is like a chicken who votes for Colonel Sanders," he said.
