Clark Lindsey Questions the Odds-makers at NASA

Clark Lindsey has some issues with the "risk" that is COTS and the "sure thing" that is Ares/Orion. He makes good points, although I think Griffin was talking about whether the COTS vehicles are going to make it at all.

Truth be told, I don't think Mike Griffin doubts that COTS is a better program, but he is in a situation where he is trying to get NASA as far as he can without getting fired for stepping on some toes making too many changes.

I still agree with Clark, though, when it comes right down to it.
