Pose a Space-Related Question to the 2008 Democratic Presidential Candidates Now

The first 2008 Democratic president debate will be held April 26 in South Carolina among candidates Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, Chris Dodd, John Edwards, Mike Gravel, Dennis Kucinich, Barack Obama, and Bill Richardson. This is an opportunity to urge the news media at MSNBC to pose questions about space agency goals and funding, the future of commercial space, and military actions in space.

Suggested questions may be posed for the presidential candidate debate by clicking here. Urge “NBC Nightly News” Anchor and Managing Editor Brian Williams, the debate moderator, to ask a space-related question of the Democratic presidential candidates.

During the course of the 2008 presidential campaign, this BLOG will endeavor to encourage readers to engage the White House candidates on space-related issues to learn their respective positions and to make space a part of the 2008 campaign agenda.

Unfortunately the debate among the Democratic presidential candidates included NO QUESTIONS relating to space policy. Perhaps the GOP presidential debate will be more productive on space-related questions. Certainly, the effort needs to be made by space advocates to force the issue to the policy agenda.
