Clark's ad campaign features
a poster he describes as "a cross
between a dustbowl-era travel-
ing circus and a Russian theater ,
from the Victorian age." The
unconventional poster, accord-
ing to Clark, serves as a remindera
that he's not a typical candidate.
In fact, as Clark pointed out
throughout the interview, he hasY
no interest in a long-term politi-
cal future and, if elected, plans to
only serve on the city council for
a single 2-year term.
With this self-imposed con-
straint, Clark said he'll have

things that make us different
that make us who we are, that
make us unique."
After the White House
announced last year's speech,
some parents threatened to pull
their kids from class during
Obama's remarks. Conservatives
also accused him of trying to
inject politics into the classroom.
A similar outcry has been
missing this year.
Schools were not required to
show the speech, as was the case
last year. Some schools also gave
parents the option of havingtheir
kids participate in another activ-
ity during the broadcast. As with
last year's speech, the White
House released the text a day
early so people could read it and
judge for themselves.
Speaking from the auditorium
at the Julia R. Masterman Labo-
ratory and Demonstration School
for fifth- through 12th-graders,
Obama urged students to stay
in school, study hard and take
responsibility for their educa-
tion. He said the nation's ability
to compete globally in the 21st
century depends on an educated
He also said nothing is beyond
their reach as long as they dream
big, work hard and focus on

"We don't yet know where the
new therapies are going to come
from and we won't know until the
research is done," he said in the
interview last night. "We are far
too early in the development of the
field to start blocking or weighing
all of our bets on one type of stem
cell and reject others."
In March 2009, the University
opened the Consortium for Stem
Cell Therapies, a facility that is
researching the derivation of new
stem cell lines to study diseases.
If the federal ruling remains in
place, funding for the center and
projects using embryonic stem
cells would also be put in jeop-
ardy, Morrison told the Daily last
In an interview with the Daily
last month, Max Wicha, director
of the University's Cancer Cen-
ter, said if the government blocks
federal funds for research, it will
have a "chilling effect" on stem
cell research conducted through-
out the country. He explained
that the U.S. would lose many
researchers who would travel to
other nations in order to continue
Morrison also said last night
that he is concerned that the issue
could be "caught up in election
year politics," as subcommit-
tee members may be reluctant to
support an issue as contentious
as stem cell research right before
a highly partisan election. This
might slow the passage of legisla-
tion relating to the field, he said.
The problem for researchers
like Morrison is that legislation
supporting stem cell research was
passed by Congress twice before,
he said, but was eventually vetoed
by then-President George W.
Despite these past mishaps,
Morrison said he is confident
that he has support within the
subcommittee, as it is composed
of senators who are "sympathet-
ic" to the cause. Morrison cited
U.S. Sen. Tom Harkin (D-Iowa),
who is a past sponsor of funding
expansion for stem cell research.
In addition to Morrison,
Francis Collins, director of the
National Institutes of Health and
a former University professor, and
George Daley, director of Stem
Cell Transplantation at Children's
Hospital Boston, are scheduled to
speak at the hearing, according to
a University News Service state-
ment released on Tuesday.

November elections, Clark said
he plans to personally reach out
