I like Barack Obama's statements about transportation policy. From: http://obama.3cdn.net/4465b108758abf7a42_a3jmvyfa5.pdf
Build More Livable and Sustainable Communities: Over the longer term, we know that the amount of fuel we will use is directly related to our land use decisions and development patterns, much of which have been organized around the principle of cheap gasoline. Barack Obama believes that we must move beyond our simple fixation of investing so many of our transportation dollars in serving drivers and that we must make more investments that make it easier for us to walk, bicycle and access
other transportation alternatives.
Sounds reasonable to me.
