Bush picks Democrat to be Transportation Secretary

Republican President-elect George Bush has nominated Democrat Norman Mineta to be Secretary of Transportation in his new administration. Norman Mineta is from San Jose (where he served a term as mayor) and later served in Congress as Chairman of the House Transportation and Public Works Committee. Most recently he served as Secretary of Commerce in the Clinton administration. The news of Mineta's nomination has been greeted favourably in the US transportation community, and he is certainly familiar with all the benefits that light rail can bring about.
