An interesting post over at "Respectful Insolence":
One of the aspects of the Barack Obama candidacy that raised my hopes and those of so many of my fellow ScienceBloggers, as well as scientists tired of the crass politicization of science under the Bush administration, was the prospect of an Administration in which science and reason were valued and in which cranks were not allowed to impose their agenda on agencies whose policies should be driven by the science. That's one reason why I was very disturbed when I read a post on Election Day suggesting that antivaccinationist crank and activist extraordinaire, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., was being seriously considered for the position of Secretary of the Interior.
Yep, it seems that a lot of people are going to be disappointed over the next four years. Is it possible to elect a "new" president? Perhaps, but now it seems like the new administration is going to be comprised of Washington insiders and might be "getting the band back together" from the Clinton years.
