Ignoring Nature?

Nature is a well regarded scientific journal. They asked the presidential candidates to answer 18 questions in writing on the future of science. Obama accepted, McCain declined. I don't know the circumstances of McCain's refusal, and campaigns are, of course, very busy. Nature still attempts to detail McCain's positions, but the absence of answers from the campaign is, I think, telling. (h/t John Prensner)
