Jeff, Disease cure/prevention has always been nonpartisan/bipartisan. Now MJF
(and his Parkinson's) is being used by the democrats as part of a democratic political ad campaign. How is this nonpartisan? Either I don't understand, or this is in direct contradiction of what MJF said (and you quote) in the Couric interview. Don't get me wrong, I have _always_ like MJF immensely and still do. He says he's not a victim, but he _is_ a victim of sorts: politics. He's been used. Am I making sense or am I all wet?
I think he was trying to make the point that he would like both sides of the aisle to provide support for embryonic stem cell research. Or another way of looking at it is, he doesn't really care which side supports stem cell research; he just wants it funded. As he said, he campaigned for Arlen Specter, too. And I think also for Clinton. Yet later in the Couric interview he states
"You know what, I don't really care about politics."
He has also made another comment that his work with the Parkinson's disease is mainly what he is about. He doesn't really care about politics itself. He just cares about his cause to find a cure for Parkinsons. -Mike
