From Wired News: The bill passed 63-37, four votes short of the two-thirds majority that would be needed to override Bush’s veto. California Gov. Schwarzenegger wrote to Bush, “Mr. President, I urge you not to make the first veto of your presidency one that turns America backwards on the path of scientific progress and limits the promise of medical miracles for generations to come.”
When the question is which scientist will be nominated for the Nobel Prize for the first isolation and in vitro maintenance of human embryonic stem cells, this whole vote drama sounds very weird.
