Politics in Science

Why would a noted conservative, paraplegic, supporter of federal funding for embryonic stem cell research turn down Obama's invitation?

I'll add to this the idea that Obama has done no such thing as remove politics from science. His decision is equally as political as Bush's. The argument about what is in-bounds is an inherently political decision, no matter which side one supports. His needling of Bush only makes it that much more apparent.
