I may have mentioned previously that John McCain's ambivalence towards public transit (and his outright opposition of Amtrak) represented the one issue where I was in agreement with Barack Obama's position. Courtesy of Transportation for America [with special thanks to Discovering Urbanism for the link], here is a nice delineation of what that position is: "President-elect Obama Responds to Transportation For America." Hey, America; at some point we need to make some bold moves towards a new way of moving people around. Out of all the rhetoric we heard from Obama on the campaign trail, his words on this subject were the ones most hope-inspiring for me.
