Obama: “We Gotta Remember ‘Rocky’ Was a Movie”


Mocks Clinton and frames himself as the underdog while speaking to the Philadelphia AFL-CIO Wednesday.

“We all love Rocky. And last time I checked, I was the underdog in this state. But we’ve got to remember that Rocky was a movie. And so is the idea that somebody can fight for working people and at the same time, embrace the broken system in Washington, where corporate lobbyists use their clout to shape laws to their liking.”

Also nabs backing of local Philly AFSCME union affiliate National Union of Hospital and Health Care Employees.

Plus: Says later in Wallingford event that he would consider Gore for a cabinet position.
