Why Space Always Fares Badly In Presidential Politics

Keith's note: The best way to ensure that space exploration is allowed to proceed in the way that it should is for everyone to just sit down and shut up. It never fares well when injected into presidential campaigns. When space is put along side something else or emphasized instead of something else invariably you get "what about [insert other issue] instead of space". Oh yes: "manned presence"? "Manned mission to Mars"? So much for the whole "first woman on the Moon" thing.
