The number one sign that Obama gets it: Steven Chu

If you would have told me in August that Barack Obama’s favorite pasttime was punching babies in the face, but he would appoint Steven Chu as Secretary of Energy, I would have asked where the nearest baby was. If you would have told me that John McCain would appoint Steven Chu as Secretary of Energy, I would have voted republican, enjoyed it, and maybe punched a baby in the face to celebrate.

Why is Steven Chu a great appointment?
a) He’s a scientist.
b) He’s a great scientist.
c) He’s a great communicator.
d) He believes that energy underpins nearly every problem or potential problem in the world.

While there have been a couple of engineers in 11 previous people to hold the office, it’s rather rare for a scientist to be selected, and it seems clear that Chu is by far the most qualified person to ever hold this position.
