Bill Nye The POTUS Guy?

In a recent episode of  renowned astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson’s StarTalk Radio, a listener asked substitute host Bill why he doesn’t run for public office? Nye then “announced” his intent to run along with Tyson and  discussed potential cabinet positions in the Nye/Tyson White House with guest hosts comedian Eugene Mirman and former NASA astronaut Mike Massimino,

Nye’s response was a joke unfortunately, it’s doubtful that there’s really a “Secretary Of Court Jesting” position (although that would be kind of awesome) to hand out to someone’s friends, but it makes you wonder what it would be like to have these two brilliant men as leaders of the Free World. Plus, it begs the question of why don’t more people from hard science and engineering backgrounds run for public office? Why do we keep electing business people and lawyers?

Slap your eyeballs on the video clip.

  1. Awesome blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a
    paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m totally overwhelmed ..
    Any tips? Appreciate it!

  2. Howdy just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you
    know a few of the pictures aren’t loading correctly.
    I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different internet
    browsers and both show the same results.
