At The Intersection of Space and Politics

I picked on Barack Obama’s education policy for the way it robbed Peter to pay Paul. That may or may not be fair. Perhaps it’s more fair to note how he buried the important details in a fifteen page statement.

Hillary Clinton as apparently noticed that fact too. There is no mistaking that she is critical of President Bush’s space policies, but she is generally favorable to a “robust” space program.

In a position paper on education unveiled in New Hampshire, Clinton’s rival advocated delaying for five years the program to build the new multibillion-dollar Constellation spacecraft and using the savings to fund a variety of education initiatives.

Asked for a response, Clinton spokesman Isaac Baker said, “Senator Clinton does not support delaying the Constellation program and intends to maintain American leadership in space exploration.”

This too, is good to know.
