TrekToday is one of many daily doses of geekery (or is it nerdality?) I get from the web. They have an interesting post today about politicians who are Trek fans. The latest is one Barack Obama, which is not enough to make me vote for him, but does give him a hair more nerd cred.

Of course, the treasonous Scooter Libby likes Trek quite a bit according to the article, so that muddies the issue. And let's not forget Jeri Ryan's ex-husband... though I doubt he's a Trek fan these days.

I think I'd be more inclined to vote for a Firefly fan; they'd probably have a more advanced concept of right and wrong anyway. Update: TreKMovie.com has more on this, written by two friends of mine: Andre Bormanis and Carolyn Porco. Kewl.
