The Communist Party USA isnâ€™t always happy with the Democrats, but in the 2012 election, its chairman says, the best bet for advancing the Partyâ€™s goals is to back Barack Obama.
In a report called â€śDefeating the Rightwing on the Road to Socialismâ€ť delivered to the CPUSA annual conference, Party Chairman Sam Webb moved to squash sentiments that disgruntled communists should jump off the Democrat ship and back a third-party candidate for president.
