OK, someone is technically in charge as Acting Administrator, and Chris Scolese is doing a decent job by all accounts. An acting chief, however, is not in a position to implement long-term visions or major program changes, both of which are likely in the works under the Obama administration. Granted, the President has an awful lot on his plate, but we seem no closer to a new Administrator now than we were last November. That's inexcusable for a national flagship agency like NASA.
