There's No Politics In NASA Hiring

Michael Griffin Chats About NASA's Future Under President Obama, Discovery Space

"In past years, we've had too many examples where that wasn't the case. The Bush administration did not mandate even one person that I had to have to fill out the NASA management team, so I was able to pick a good team and that's absolutely essential for any agency. We can't pick people to run a space agency based on politics and I won't be party to that either."

Editor's note: C'mon Mike. Everyone knows that all government agencies get political hires shoved down their throats. For you to try and suggest that your tenure at NASA is an exception to this practice is silly. What about Paul Morrell?, Joe Davis?, Dave Mould?, Patrick Rhode? Jane Cherry? George Deutsch? Ellen Engelman Conners? And so on.
