I hope not. He needs to stay as long as Goldin to straighten things out properly.


I think it might depend on how things are going when Bush goes, if I was him and the CEV was just coming on line and the ISS was nearing completion I'd want to stick around as things got interesting. But then maybe he'll have other irons in the fire then.

I wonder whether Lockheed and Boeing are doing hasty revisions of their CEV proposals in light of his preference for a STS derived system. He certainly doesn't appear to swallow to much crap from them but I only hope that Boing/Lockheed bought congressmen dont start to reign him in.

ATK Thiokol has some muscle as well--and they support Griffin--needless to say.
