Popular Mechanics Analyzes the Candidates

Popular Mechanics systematically exposes that all 3 presidential candidates are soft on space. McCain will freeze the budget, Hillary focuses on a ensuring expensive government capability to do what COTS is trying to do, and Obama is stately against expensive and dangerous human spaceflight.

It makes me sick to my stomach to see these politicians cover their bases with vague statements and ignoring the science debate. Give them your 2 cents. Tell them it makes you sick as well.

Ironically, none of these candidates were my original choices entering into this election (alas my favorites on both sides dropped out).

How ever, I am hoping that even if McCain freezes the budget, it may stimulate NASA to work with NewSpace even more, thus helping us to return to the Moon earlier than expected (I am hoping for this, nothing more).
