(Still) Waiting For Bridenstine

Keith's note: On Wednesday 7 June VP Pence will be at JSC for the astronaut announcement thing. The next day there is a markup of the American Space Commerce Free Enterprise Act of 2017 in Washington, DC and Rep. Jim Bridenstine will be in attendance. Given all of the visibility one would think that the JSC event might be a good place to announce that Bridenstine is the Administration's choice for NASA Administrator. Then again this announcement might be better done as a stand-alone event back in Washington, DC. Bridenstine is term-limited and has now spent 25% of his last term in the House waiting to see if he is going to be nominated to run NASA - or not. Bridenstine has told people that he wants to stay in DC once his term is over. Of course, the best place from which to pick a post-Congress landing site is from your seat in Congress. How long will Bridenstine be willing to wait for the NASA job? Stay tuned.
