      • There actually used to be a mention of this on the page (I added it) but I think a sock puppet removed it. --Jhfrontz (talk) 17:05, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

We know this is a pure political appointment, Our Nation's Space directive is being guided by someone whom does not even have a true science degree. She is pushing for climate change research where this subject is still being debated and thus far is proving to be false. We need Administrator's who are not politically connected and have the right stuff in science to pursue goals that benefit American human space exploration, not whim's of ignorant social policy. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 13:24, 14 February 2010 (UTC)

as an engineer, i'm sympathetic to the view that a space policy degree from GW don't help in program management. after all, she is filling the slot of Hugh Dryden, and none of his successors deserve to hold his slide rule. however, this argument is similar to the ad hominem attack against her, as the architect of Obama's new policy. plu--eese, the one qualification for admins is political connections. nasa's goals have been purely political ab initio. human space exploration is a social policy. maybe we could speak of the golden naca years.
