Baby steps

Slowly he's coming around. The governor-elect seems to have abandoned his unrealistic position on turning the train money into highway money. It says he's looking to use it on other rail projects instead of the Milwaukee-Madison high speed train.

At this point it he seems to be operating on pure spite. He can't get what he wants so the federal government can't get what it wants.

Although then again, he may have been okay with the train in the first place but used being against it to get elected and now he's got to politically maneuver himself in such away to accept the train and still come out looking like a winner.

By the way, since the last train post last week, I came across a wikipedia article summarizing the whole thing which has this neat map.
