Joe Biden’s love of Amtrak tells us how he would govern

Published October 20, 2020


The Washington Post published an article authored by David Alff, about how Joe Biden's love for taking trains reflects his pragmatic approach to how he might govern. Alff says that Amtrak epitomizes Biden’s ideological commitments to incremental governance, dealmaking and compromise. This conciliatory approach to getting things done, known as “the Delaware Way,” held that personal rapport could overcome partisan division and that corporate benevolence could bring about economic justice.
