All 2008 US Nobel Laureates in Science Endorse Obama! - Scientists & Engineers for America Action Fund

|

If I remember the traditional characteristics of scientists and engineers, this article doesn’t say much for Obama, or anybody else they’d choose to endorse. Just because a bunch of brainiacs, whose worldviews tend to be very focused on their areas of expertise, endorse any candidate doesn’t mean much to me.

If one of them had a recommendation for, say, a great way to synthesize a fluorescent green protein, then I might be interested.

I’m intrigued that the Nobel Laureates felt the need to use their celebrity to endorse a political candidate. That puts them into the same category as Tom Cruise and Madonna.

Just because these people are each smart about one thing, celebrated though they may be, it doesn’t mean that their celebrity makes them any wiser than anybody else.
