"Over the next decade we can lead the way in beating cancer"Now, as a reader has noted, does anyone remember an episode of The West Wing called "100,000 AIRPLANES" where Jed Bartlett is talking about what should be in his State of the Union speech? It went like this.
BARTLET: So I ask you, why shouldn't I stand up and say we are going to cure cancer in ten years?Nuff said?
Silence in the room. No one responds.
I'm really asking.

It'll be seen as a political ploy.
