Space Advocacy Groups: Not Ready For Prime Time?

Editor's note: Last night a Mars Society member (and Hukabee supporter) managed to get a video question inserted into the Republican Presidential debate. Yet, as of 2:00 pm EST neither Planetary Society, the National Space Society, the Coalition for Space Exploration, the Space Exploration Alliance, or even the Mars Society has any mention whatsoever of this question being asked last night. Gee, I had something online 10-20 minutes after the words were spoken - and I am not especially gifted in regard to web stuff. It is now 14 hours later and there is not a peep from the space advocacy community. I have to ask, why is anyone (campaign staff, voters) going to pay any additional attention to groups that support an issue when they cannot get off of their collective butts to even make note of (and capitalize upon) a potential breakthrough in a national debate?
