Transit Oriented Politics
From the Overhead Wire comes word that Democratic presidential candidate and Senator Hillary Clinton (D. NY) has pledged to raise Federal funding for local and intercity rail. She also is calling for linking federal public transit funds to land use policy. Sounds like Transit Oriented Development.
And the Washcycle makes note of a Des Moines (Iowa) Register story about Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards getting on a bicycle to ride a portion of the RAGBRAI (Register's Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa) route champion cyclist Lance Armstrong.
