At least one Democrat has a space policy:

Until Zefram Cochrane is born, I'd like to know what his position is
on more mundane forms of spaceflight are.....

Evans made the phosphor on my monitor glow
in such a way as to indicate that:

Given his other deficits, I'm not sure that I care. I can't imagine
voting for him under any circumstances.

Well, this certainly does tend to support your (and other) assertions
that a 'pro-space' stance soesn't help, and may actually hinder a
candidate. Had he addressed things like encouraging space development,
he would've at least avoided sounding like a flake...

(Which has nothing to do withwether FTL travel is ever possible or
not, it's simply totally irrelevant at this time. "Mr. President, I
canna change the laws of physics!")

Whoa, you guys are letting partisanship blind you on this one.

Gen Clark clearly indicated that he knew that FTL violated the laws of
physics as we know them today, all he was saying he that he has faith
that some day we will find a way to exceed light speed. He did not say
we would do this tomorrow, or how we would do it.

Give the guy a break, if Bush had said it, you guys would be falling
over one other to talk about what a visionary the guy is.
