Hell, I'd like to see a coherent policy come out of NASA.
In order of preference:
1. Send Bush to the ISS.
2. Decommission and abandon the ISS, (leave Bush there), it's a money drain.
3. Permanent presence on the moon prior to 2020.
4. First human on Mars-2020.
5. Manned exploration of the solar system from 2020 onwards.
America and the Apollo program showed the world what a committed nation could accomplish. Our present space exploration program is a sad sack of shit without national leadership, vision, or clearly defined goals. That being said, there is clearly outstanding science being performed, but I fear my country is waning, when somebody looting beer after a hurricane is more news worthy then two robot rovers on the surface of Mars, well, you can dismiss this culture as reaching it's end.
