Sen. Hillary Clinton received another union endorsement on Wednesday.
WASHINGTON (CNN) - Praising her record on health care and postal reform, the National Association of Letter Carriers officially endorsed Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-New York, Wednesday morning.
"In the primary elections next year, you can count on letter carriers to deliver for Senator Clinton, and I am confident that in the years to come, President Hillary Clinton will deliver for every citizen throughout America," NALC President William Young said.
Clinton praised the union workers, saying they are the only workers that physically reach every home in America and called them "part of the fabric of every community." The NALC is comprised of 300,000 active and retired city delivery carriers employed by the U.S. Postal Service
She promised to appoint experienced people to head government agencies and cut down on outsourcing and foreign contractors.
"Isn't it a sad commentary that it would be a campaign issue to restore competence? But what we've seen in the last six years is indifference and incompetence," Clinton said.
Clinton also criticized President Bush's plan to withdraw 30,000 troops from Iraq by next spring, calling it "simply too little too late."
"Mr. President, we don't need another ‘mission accomplished’ moment," Clinton said. "What we need is honesty and candor - an honesty and candor that demands that you announce that you will start bringing troops home now. If President Bush won't do that, when I am president I will."
