Here’s today’s Facebook post:

Reason #6 Why I’m a Democrat: One of the best parts of my job is fostering and learning about the innovative research being conducted today by tomorrow’s scientists. As 68 science Nobel Prize winners recently noted, “President Obama understands the key role science has played in building a prosperous America” and “has championed investment in science and technology research that is the engine of our economy.” Romney “supports a budget that, if implemented, would devastate a long tradition of support for public research and investment in science at a time when this country’s future depends, as never before, on innovation.”

As a dean who now works for help fund undergraduate research, this issue couldn’t be more important to me!
