That would be cool.I see no reason why Biden shouldn't have a bulletproof Presidential private car for riding the rails. Why deny him one of his favorite pleasures? I'm sure they can convert some back or side entrance to DC Union Station into the Presidential Secure Entrance. We already need to secure the tracks and the dispatching offices; in many ways it's a much smaller problem than securing a motorcade.
IMHO, Emanuel inherited a city budget hampered by years of Daley buying labor peace by agreeing freely to union terms in negotiating various labor agreements. Daley was gone, "undefeated", and Emanuel was the "bad guy" when those agreements came home to roost.Rahm Emmanuel as DOT Secretary is scary to me after living in Chicago to see the state of things when he left. He was definitely in over his head as Mayor.
