Dare we hope?

Michael Griffin, the new NASA administrator nominee, wants to send another manned servicing mission to Hubble.

Is it possible that something good could come out of this second Bush administration? Possible that one person among all the nominees could actually be planning for the future, rather than counting on the Rapture to fix everything? How did this guy Griffin, who clearly believes in the value of science, make it through the Administration's vetting process?

Far be it from me to look a gift sane-iac in the mouth. I just hope he makes it through the inevitable "Do you believe in God or the Big Bang?" interrogation.
