Rocket Holy Wars

I'm tossing it in on a debate here. Some folks are utterly convinced that hydrogen is The One True Fuel for rockets and won't consider that it's more complicated than that. If specific impulse was so damn important the shuttle would burn hydrogen with fluorine.

Update: Further discussion with Rocketman showed that we actually do agree that "it depends on the situation" is the right answer. All is well.
