Charlie Hales - Holding Together With Chewing Gum and Bailing Wire

Anyone else ready for the Transportation Bill to be finished?  I know I am.  But folks like Charlie Hales, currently with HDR Engineering but soon to be running for Mayor of Portland, seem to be happy with what we've gotten out of this administration so far.  Over $400 million for streetcars via TIGER and Urban Circulator grants?  Sure, we'll take it, even if it is a system somewhat held together with chewing gum and bailing wire as Charlie states in this interview from CNU 19 in Madison.
