U.S. Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) went a bit off script today at that NCRC 2010 National Conference when, after a emphasizing responsive, empathetic government promoting an agenda around social justice, he became more reflective, first recalling his own rental eviction as a college undergrad, and then tacking toward a more uplifting message, using his native Baltimore’s Inner Harbor as background.
The seven term Democrat recalled an address made by the Rev. Jesse Jackson, who urged his audience to go “where the big boats are.”
