Obama on Science
On The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, President Obama said, "We need young people, instead of -- a smart kid coming out of school, instead of wanting to be an investment banker, we need them to decide if they want to be an engineer, they want to be a scientist, they want to be a doctor or a teacher. And if we are rewarding those kind of things that actually contribute to making things and making people's lives better -- that's going to put our economy on solid footing. We won't have this kind of bubble and burst with the economy that we have gotten so caught up with in the last several years."
