We're deleting Promise No. 9 on trade policy

We're deleting Promise No. 9, which President Obama would "use trade agreements to spread good labor and environmental standards around the world and stand firm against agreements like the Central American Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA) that fail to live up to those important benchmarks."

In publishing an update on Promise No. 8 , we realized that 8 and 9 were virtually identical. So we are deleting No. 9.
