Amtrak Joe

President Barack Obama , Vice President Joe Biden and Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood announce a push for a high speed passenger rail system during an event at the Eisenhower Executive Office Building in Washington. Biden achieved some fame for his daily train commutes from Washington to his Wilmington, Del. home during his more than three decades in the U.S. Senate. Because of his frequent train travel, some have labeled Biden "Amtrak Joe." Today, Mr. Obama called him "America's number one rail fan."
