Today, the 186-member Democratic platform committee put together a draft document “united behind a commitment that every American man, woman and child be guaranteed to have affordable, comprehensive health care.” Other highlights of the platform — which will be adopted at the Democratic convention later this month — are “complete redeployment within 16 months” from Iraq, closure of the Guantanamo Bay detention facility, and “tough, practical, and humane immigration reform in the first year of the next administration.”

Update

Digby has more on the abortion portion of the platform.
