Will be moving to Philadelphia metro soon for a new job. Looking for a place to live. Currently live in the NYC boroughs. Have a difficult list of must haves.

The only Philly suburb I've ever been to is Doylestown. Liked the walkability, SEPTA station, and good schools. Didn't like the cost of real estate and the really like train ride into Center City.
Can anyone recommend a Philly suburb that has:
(a) A "less than 45 minute" SEPTA (or Amtrak) ride into Center City.
(b) Good schools
(c) A walkable "downtown" area, especially if it's near the train.
It would also help if it DIDN'T have:
(x) extremely high real estate prices
(y) a very strong political slant (in either direction)
(z) high crime
