Madeleine Albright commends Obama on infrastructure plan
An unexpected ally: Former Secretary of State and current Global Infrastructure Initiative Co-chair Madeleine Albright is on board with Obama’s message Tuesday night. “I was heartened by the President’s call for a renewed commitment to infrastructure. In my travels, I have seen first-hand how vital good roads, bridges, ports and waterways, power grids, and communication facilities are in enabling communities and countries to compete in the global economy. Without these investments, societies stagnate. With them, the opportunities provided by trade, new marketing arrangements, and advanced technology become available to all sectors,” she said in a statement.
