Bruce Reed: a rare breed in Idaho

 

   Idaho native Bruce Reed, a former aide to two U.S. presidents and a vice-president, was the keynote speaker Monday night for the 17th annual awards banquet sponsored by the Kootenai County Task Force on Human Rights.

   Reed recalled being in a planning meeting with President Bill Clinton. Clinton told him he should "pickled and put in the Smithsonian" because he was such a rare breed: an Idaho Democrat.

   Reed, a native of Coeur d’Alene, now serves as the president of the Broad Education Foundation located in California. He co-authored with Rahm Emanuel, currently the Mayor of Chicago, the book The Plan: Big Ideas for America.
