    Scientists aren't "socially awkward." I believe you outed yourself as an engineer, in which case I will half-jokingly accuse you of projection.

    Research science is actually good training for a political career. There are great many opportunities for public speaking and debate, contact with the media, and then there's working in a political bureaucracy (the university).

    I want to break through some of the stereotypes associated with scientists, because they are holding back greater political success.

    I'd also like to point out that many weirdos and introverts are routinely elected to Congress. I think they are the norm, in fact. Students for a New American Politics!
