Presidential campaign surrogates debate science policy at AAAS Boston

ScienceDebate2008 is looking more and more likely as the campaigns of two major candidates (Obama and Clinton) sent surrogates on short notice to a hastily pulled-together preliminary session at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in Boston. Senator McCain’s campaign sent regrets due to the short notice, while the Huckabee and Paul campaigns did not respond at all.

Blogger Sheril Kirshenbaum of “The Intersection” provides her perspectives in an enthusiastic report that indicates that the campaigns are beginning to take ScienceDebate2008 seriously.

Of course, if you consider this much ado about nothing and would rather read a book, I have a few suggestions from my recent reading and my recent writing.
