This is actually a misconception. We tend to over-estimate distances in the US.

Actually, if you take the Eastern half of the US, you'll realize that distances between major cities are very similar to the distances between major cities in Western Europe.

The distance between Chicago and Washington, DC is the same as between Madrid and Marseille. The distance between Houston and Dallas is the same as between Frankfurt and Munich.

The only difference is that the countryside is empty between US major cities whereas there are tons of smaller towns between European major cities. However, this is irrelevant regarding HSR as trains never stop in smaller towns anyway. They directly connect major cities between themselves. As a matter of fact, the US wouldn't really need a more extensive HSR network than what already exist in Western Europe.
