The Democratic Party platform’s [pdf] position on space and NASA is one sentence long.

President Obama has charted a new mission for NASA to lead us to a future that builds on America’s legacy of innovation and exploration.

Sadly, they do not, which suggests again that Obama and his party really aren’t that interested in it.
