Great quote by Florida Senator Bill Nelson in post yesterday in The Flame Trench: “There is some political center that is slow walking this. And I don’t know what it is, who it is, or why,’ the Orlando Democrat said. ‘But all of the competition has either dropped out or been put someplace else? I don’t know anybody else who is in serious contention.”
The Senator is exactly right. With so many qualified candidates for running NASA, why is the Obama Administration taking so long nominate someone for NASA Administrator?
Anyone nominated for NASA Administrator will have to deal with Senator Nelson and the committee he is on. So if the NASA Administrator candidate isn’t someone he’ll pass-on, this could get interesting.
