No Space Policy from Kerry

John Kerry paid a visit to Kennedy Space Center before the Democratic convention, and I think it is noteworthy that while there, among space enthusiasts, he had nothing to say about the future of the US Space Program.  Apparently the Democratic Party Platform also says nothing about space or space exploration.

Now, I am not the most enthusiastic NASA supporter anymore, but I do believe in space exploration, especially by the private sector. Either way, there is a lot that a coherent and thoughtful national space policy might do to advance human exploration of space and the technology that will keep the US at the forefront of the future.  This is yet another example of how the Democrats, and the Left in general, tend to ignore the future and concentrate on the past.  Past achievements are no guarantee of future glory.

He was just in Florida to do a political rally among the KSC workers...probably required to listen to his non-speak.
It was a photo op, nothing more...and what a photo op! Kerry the Giant Condom! What were they thinking? Someone's head at NASA PAO might roll...
couldn't happen to a nicer bunch of guys....
