McCain on Space

John McCain has posted this on his website (his typo, not mine):

"John McCain has been a strong supporter of NASA and the space program. . ."
Also, Former NASA administrator Sean O'Keefe has publicly endorsed McCain:
"His leadership during a challenging time in the rich NASA history helped put our nation's quest for exploration on track. . ."
I received this message in a personal email from someone representing his campaign as a response to my inquiry as to why he has appeared so lukewarm on space throughout this campaign:
". . .I can assure you that the McCain campaign will be saying more about space and its importance to not only the American economy and science, but to our very view of our selves."
With these three developments over that past day, perhaps we can expect McCain to come out with more pro-space statements.
