This will convince some Republican senators to start taking the space program seriously.

Tom Delay is actually a good friend of NASA--sadly its the DNC under Obey and Kerry who are its worst enemies. JFK would be sad. This would be a great opportunity for pro-government folks to prove how privateization isn't always the best answer.

Rutan and other folks who love to bash NASA could have their heads handed to them with support for VSE. But because the person who supported it was a man by the name of Bush--naturally they have to be against it--just for spite.

I will not abide partisan politics on this forum. Don't bait like this again.
