Eisenhower was one reason I was never a republican for very long. His separation of NASA from the military, like his screed against the "Military-Industrial" complex was at least a gratuitous slap at his comrades at arms. Edwards AF Base and China Lake NOTS had the brains in place - NASA had to start almost from scratch and Huston was planted on intellectually virgin soil.
Keep surprising me, Mr. President.
