Obama: Science Debate 2008

Some of you may remember me sending out an e-mail asking you to sign a petition for Science Debate 2008. Although neither candidate agreed to an actual science debate, Obama has at least answered the top 14 science questions that were submitted. So far he seems very supportive. He's also provided more detail than I'm used to from him. He approves of stem cell research and has promised to remove the idiotic bush bans on embryo use. He seems supportive of basic research funding but I'm not sure where said funding is going to come from. I'm a bit skeptical but there is no doubt that he'll be more supportive of scientific endeavors in general than pretty much any republican candidate. John McCain has promised to answer the questions but hasn't gotten around to it yet. We're waiting John...
