Obama Dissed the "New Rochelle Train" and Commuting Life
Barack Obama dissed the "New Rochelle train" and commuting to work.
David Mendell's Obama: From Promise to Power, p. 148-149:
"[Obama] always talked about the New Rochelle train, the trains that took commuters to and from New York City, and he didn't want to be on one of those trains every day," said Jerry Kellman, the community organizer who enticed Obama to Chicago from his Manhattan office job. "The image of a life, not a dynamic life, of going through the motions... that was scary to him."
....There's nothing wrong with saying, "that life, taking the New Rochelle train, just isn't for me."
