ARGENTINA: Cristina Snubbing Labor Leader Moyano To Court Middle Class Voters.

    BLOOMBERG / Longish profile
Hugo Moyano, 67,  the powerful leader of the 5.5mn member Teamster's union, is now being snubbed by President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner...after 8 years of faithful service to the Kirchners.

Observers say by distancing herself from Moyano, CFK will attract middle-class voters turned off by many disruptive union-led road blockades.

Moyano, sometimes called "the Jimmy Hoffa of Argentina," won't take the snub quietly.
