Hillary Clinton Hears About Space Policy at Washington Issues Forum

Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton’s Presidential campaign held an “Issues Forum & Breakfast” this morning in Washington, DC. at the Hyatt Regency Washington on Capitol Hill – and space policy was on the agenda.

Among the breakout sessions was one titled “Commercial & Civil Aerospace” which was led and hosted by former NASA Policy and Plans Associate Administrator Lori Garver. Former NASA Public Affairs Associate Administrator Glenn Mahone also participated as a moderator. A dozen or so people participated.

In addition to the space session, other sessions, lead and hosted by some heavy hitters in Democratic circles were: Energy and Environment – Carol Browner and Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee; Economic Policy, Globalization and Competitiveness – Mickey Kantor, Gene Sperling and Laura Tyson; Foreign Policy and National Security – Lieutenant General Donald Kerrick and Wendy Sherman; Health Care – Chris Jennings; Rural Development and Agriculture – Bob Nash and Burns Strider; and Telecommunications and Technology – Susan Ness and Steve Rattner.

The breakout session participants (several hundred) also participated in a breakfast meeting with Sen. Clinton.
