Hoffa storms Cleveland in final Ohio election push for Obama

While many liberal pundits attempt to connect Senator Barack Obama with the legacy of President John F. Kennedy, there is a huge difference between the late Kennedy and presidential hopeful Obama: Their relationship with Hoffa and the Teamsters.

JFK's younger brother, Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy, attempted to investigate, prosecute and imprison Teamster leader Jimmy Hoffa; Obama is in the tank with Hoffa's son and the Teamsters.

Teamsters General President Jim Hoffa is making a final election push Nov. 3-4 in Cleveland to help get out the vote for Sen. Barack Obama in the key battleground state of Ohio.

Hoffa will meet with Teamster election volunteers and staff, and will also visit Teamster job sites to discuss important issues affecting the lives of members and their families.

The Teamsters Union has 600 volunteers and staff working in Ohio to turn out our more than 65,000 members on Election Day. More than 1,000 Teamster job sites in the state have been visited at least four times each in the past month by the union's volunteers and paid staff.

The Teamsters' 2008 election mobilization across the country exceeds any effort ever attempted by the union since Obama has promised the union his support in passing legislation aimed at strengthening labor unions.
