Democratic Congressional Committee Chair Rahm Emanuel may be short on personality, but he's strong on common sense and legislative vision. Last night he articulated a five-point platform on Real Time with Bill Maher that was both practical and principled:
1) Balance the budget*
2) More affordable, accessible college education
3) Universal healthcare
4) Hybrid economy not completely based on fossil fuels
5) Investment in an institute of science and technology so we can create high tech jobs
*Unlike the no longer fiscally conservative, no tax and overspend Republican party.
