Ray LaHood on the Daily Show with Jon Stewart talking high speed rail!

Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood -- perhaps the nation's biggest cheerleader for high speed rail (besides Vice-President Joe Biden and President Barack Obama) wetn on the Daily Show with Jon Stewart this week and talked up our favorite topic: high speed rail.

The pithiest quote came early, and while you should watch it, it went something like this:

Stewart: Let me ask you a question as the Secretary of Transportation. I'm a CEO of a billion dollar corporation. I need to go meet the President of the United States in the morning. But it's foggy. Can I really not get there?

LaHood: Amtrak. Amtrak runs in the fog.
