Clinton urges Obama to work with Pelosi on trade deal

U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton speaks at a campaign event in Des MoinesBy Alana Wise DES MOINES, Iowa (Reuters) – Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton on Sunday urged President Barack Obama to work with congressional Democrats who rejected his trade agenda last week, and to seek tougher labor protections in a proposed Pacific trade deal. Clinton had until now declined to take a stand on the Trans-Pacific Partnership, but her comments amounted to an implicit rebuke of Obama and a nod toward liberal critics of the deal. At a campaign stop in Iowa, Clinton said Obama should work with opponents like House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, who engineered the defeat of a related trade package last week.
