    Does this really matter now? Bush only has about a year left in office – won’t the election change things?

    The problem is Holsinger has shown he is willing to subvert science to politics and religion. And he can still do a lot of damage in a year. Imagine if he convinced Bush to divert research funding to people like Paul Cameron. People whose “research” is designed more to support a specific ideology than to advance medical knowledge. Long-term funding that could extend beyond the year Holsinger is in charge.

    Won’t happen over the Thanksgiving Holiday. Looks like Reid outsmarted the White House on this one.
