Please excuse anything that may seem rough around the edges, as it may only be a first draft of a thought and not be fully representative of what was said on the air.

The real issues

Instead of arguing about things that only serve as partisan hot-button issues, how about we get to work building some agreement about emerging issues that haven't gotten the attention they deserve?

Criminal-justice reform

Infrastructure spending and maintenance

Trade and technology adjustment

Cybersecurity
