Stem Cells

Excellent news on the stem cell front: even Republicans want to ditch George Bush’s lame and indefensible restrictions on embryonic stem cell research. In a recent poll of Republicans — in which 90% approved of Bush’s performance in general — a solid 57% said they favored embryonic stem cell research.

What will Bush do? Legislation to open up stem cell research is widely supported even by Republicans and it has broad support in both the House and Senate too. So if a bill lands on his desk, does he sign it or veto it?  Keep in mind that he has never vetoed a bill in his entire presidency.  Can he veto one that even Republicans support to curry favor with the krazy kristian kooks?
