As for the circuitous route, well, the route goes where people live and not the largely industrial area where the bus goes It's part of Seattle's plan to serve its citizens, not a point to point route.
The route may go where people live but it condemns the success of the train later on when it is extended towards Federal Way and Tacoma. Those people will be discouraged from taking the train being it detours and goes away from a straight route. It would be like if the train started in San Francisco then went to Houston then Chicago. People in Houston might like it but SF to Chicago would be less viable.
