Hillary to unions: I'm with you

Philadelphia Daily News 215-854-5973
U.S. SEN. HILLARY Clinton, attacking what she called the "Bush-McCain philosophy" of protecting only the wealthy and the well-connected, vowed yesterday to battle for organized labor.

Speaking in Philadelphia to the Pennsylvania AFL-CIO, Clinton also repeated a series of economic criticisms of her rival for the Democratic presidential nomination, U.S. Sen. Barack Obama.

_ She said that while Obama talks about favoring clean energy, "when he had a chance to do something about it, he actually voted for Dick Cheney's energy bill. I voted against it."

That's a reference to a 2005 vote on legislation that started with the vice president's energy priorities but evolved into a series of negotiations in Congress.

_ She said Obama talks about universal health care but would leave out 15 million Americans, including 400,000 in Pennsylvania.

"I'm not just going to talk about universal health care," Clinton said. "I'm going to get it done."
