Labor's Trumka: Hillary Clinton is 'very, very qualified to be president'

Washington (CNN) - Richard Trumka is not ready to endorse Hillary Clinton for president in 2016. But that may be because, as he says, "there is no there, there."

Dean said he might make a repeat White House bid of his own, promising to agitate "other politicians" in the race on issues precious to liberals.
