Rahm Emanuel is having regular conversations with presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and his top advisers about economic policy, the selection of a running mate and the political machinations of taking on President Donald Trump.
While Chicago’s former mayor is keeping the specifics to himself, he offered some hints about his counsel while mic’d up during a round of recent TV and podcast appearances.
Among Emanuel’s ideas: Democrats should stop looking timid on reopening the country amid the coronavirus pandemic and offer a bold plan to rebuild the nation’s infrastructure. While millions of Americans are stuck on unemployment, the government should pay for them to be trained for future jobs in coding and cybersecurity. And it’s time Democrats push for a New Deal 2.0 with guarantees on retirement security, health care and college education.
As for the selection of a running mate, Emanuel said the decision is more important than usual — Biden is 77 and would take office amid health and economic crises — but that policy direction is at least as important for the former vice president.
Well that sure makes me feel better! :sarcasm:

the plan sounds familiar, similar to one offered by an earlier candidate.
i despise emanuel but would be happy if the plan came to fruition — in real life.

Can Arne Duncan be far behind?

If memory serves, that was a Republican meme attacking Democrats. Now here’s Rahm proving they were spot on. Are there not enough coders? Is he trying to flood the market with them to keep salaries down? Gotta be. It’s Rahm.
OTOH, he could just be bullshitting. He is a Vichy Democrat, after all. Not to mention being a fucking retard when it comes to winning elections lately.
