Sally Ride For Obama

As readers know, we place a special value on people who have gone into space. Sally Ride went into space. And she endorses Obama.

Sally Ride, the first American woman in space, endorsed the Democratic candidate on Wednesday in an op-ed published in the Orlando Sentinel.

Comparing Obama’s inspirational capabilities to those of JFK, she writes, ‘He has inspired young people to engage with their communities and has excited them about the possibilities of what they can accomplish. That is in the best spirit of discovery.’
