ScienceInsider has an extensive Q&A with John Holdren, the Obama Presidential Science Advisor. A large part of the interview deals with the funding, the stimulus bill, and the regular budget for science at DOE, NSF, and NIH.
A similar Q&A with him was also held Nature (link open for free only for a limited time). So it looks like he's certainly making the rounds with the major scientific journals.
Unlike the previous Science Advisor (which we will try to forget), Holdren should be close enough to President Obama to be an effective science advisor.
