I think Obama is an atheist, but can't show it because of his presidency.
I can't help but think that maybe this is one of Obama's ways of promoting science into a God-country. It will certainly be easier to grant more funding to science projects, if there is even a slightest hint of religion attached to it.
It might even make religous people have a serious look at science for a change.
Collins might be perfect for the role, having made a good impression on both the religious and the science community.

Maybe Obama's taking it one step at a time.

Or at least that's my hope.
