It figures he'll be near the top of the list. He's already acquired some notoriety from STS-114; if he gets his shuttle command and quick turnaround reassignment to CEV/NASA design office, I'd say it's a sure bet.

Nice story, and I agree, he's got a very good chance.

A better chance now that John Young's retired. You can bet he'd of putting himself on the top of that list too!

He really deserves it. I hope NASA make the right call and give him the shot.

Keep an eye on the shuttle pilot group, not necessarily the commanders. Whether or not they get to command one of last remaining shuttle missions, their age and experience will put them in good position to fly CEV around 2012 timeframe. See http://www11.jsc.nasa.gov/Bios/astrobio_activemgmt.html

How big's the list!  :o  Charlie Camarda could do with some loving :)

On Kelly, nice attitude, was impressed with the boyish excitement when describing the launch and what it feels like, but a true pro during missions. Deserves the flight.

Perfect choice and way to get the role.

Thanks, that was a nice story, I also think he should be chosen, he's a good public image for the media to use too.
