    although you seem to have a higher regard for Griffin's engineering abilities than I do. You may also be underestimating the amount of trust that has been lost with the science community, both inside and outside NASA. He's buried himself there on pretty much every side -- technical, personal, and fiscal -- and I don't think he can dig himself out of that hole. Maybe "we can balance earth science, planetary science and manned flights," but I don't think Griffin can -- nor that he even wants to.

    •  Well, I'm ready for someone who can... (0+ / 0-)

      but let's keep in mind, we need strong political skills to keep NASA from getting gutted every time it's enemies have the chance...

      (What we really need is Jim Webb...)

      When a government violates the unalienable rights of the people, it loses its legitimacy.
