Obama's Deal with the Teamsters

Today's Wall Street Journal implies that Barack Obama may have offered the
Teamsters a quid pro quo in order to win the endorsement.  Making matters worse, his "deal" involves looking the other way on the issue of corruption:

"Sen. Barack Obama won the endorsement of the Teamsters earlier this year after privately telling the union he supported ending the strict federal oversight imposed to root out corruption, according to officials from the union and the Obama campaign.

It's an unusual stance for a presidential candidate. Policy makers have largely treated monitoring of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters as a legal matter left to the Justice Department since an independent review board was set up in 1992 to eliminate mob influence in the union."

Once again, it is interesting that this information is at least partly coming from within Obama's own team.

Making back-room deals with the Teamsters -- now that's a "new brand of politics"!
