Clinton Pledges Support for Orion, Obama still Wishy-Washy

In Houston on Saturday night, Hillary again pledged to fund the "next generation of spacecraft." Whether or not this includes Ares 5 is unknown. Barack has also said "I want to support the next generation of spacecraft for a robust human spaceflight program." and accompanied it with the caveat of saying that he does "not just assume that human space exploration, actually sending bodies into space, is always the best investment."

While these two statements, along with the others stated on their websites and in previous messages, give the basic message of their feelings on space exploration, they leave much to be desired by way of details.

Get them both out the the "science debate 2008" so that they are put under the gun with direct questions regarding their stance on space exploration
