  1. With all due respect to the gentleman's life work. Notwithstanding all of it, is it not time to focus on people with a science/technology and/or with deep social science backgrounds to guide us into the future? Shouldn't we be looking out for people with deeper insights into making this country into a" do factory", instead of a "talk factory"?

    The Senate is to provide deeper meaning into pieces of legislation brought before it on the floor of the Upper House. Shouldn't guarantee that with our selections?
