Seed endorses Obama

Barack Obama for President – An endorsement from the editors of Seed:

Far more important is this: Science is a way of governing, not just something to be governed. Science offers a methodology and philosophy rooted in evidence, kept in check by persistent inquiry, and bounded by the constraints of a self-critical and rigorous method. Science is a lens through which we can and should visualize and solve complex problems, organize government and multilateral bodies, establish international alliances, inspire national pride, restore positive feelings about America around the globe, embolden democracy, and ultimately, lead the world. More than anything, what this lens offers the next administration is a limitless capacity to handle all that comes its way, no matter how complex or unanticipated.

Sen. Obama’s embrace of transparency and evidence-based decision-making, his intelligence and curiosity echo this new way of looking at the world. And that is what we should be weighing in the voting booth. For his positions and, even more, for his way of coming to them, we endorse Barack Obama for President of the United States.

    Sen. Obama’s embrace of transparency

    He still uses transparencies? No wonder he needs that overhead projector. He needs to get up to speed on PowerPoint, or better yet an open source equivalent such as OpenOffice Impress.

    Trin – you heard how much the OHP cost. Imagine how much money he’d want if he needed a laptop projector. He won’t have the spare change for when he decides to invade Alaska.

    Wow, way to get on the train just before the last stop.
