Lawrence Krauss, a science professor at Case Western Reserve University, has a commentary piece in the Wall Street Journal calling for -- of all things -- a solid grasp of science in the next US president. He notes that in an early Republican debate this year, three candidates said they did not believe in evolution; in the next debate, candidate "Mike Huckabee explained that he was running for president of the US, not writing the curriculum for an eighth-grade science book, and therefore the issue was unimportant," according to the essay. (Good save, Mike. Good save.)
Krauss is a member of a group called ScienceDebate2008, which he says will call for a "presidential debate devoted to science and technology" covering three topics: health and medicine, environment, and science/tech policy. Now that's one debate GTO would actually tune in for.
