ILJ: Obama, McCain & The Infrastructure Thing

Excellent post in the Intrepid Liberal Journal blog about the presidential candidates' plans regarding our failing infrastructure. It includes a brief history of the genius of President Eisenhower with his implementation of the National Interstate and Defense Highways Act in 1956. Unfortunately, this bold move half a century ago has yet to be replicated or even aggressively maintained, the result of which we were painfully reminded on August 1, 2007. Whomever we choose in this election must make it clear that infrastructure programs must be in the forethought of the next administration. For all of our sakes.
