An't Clones Better Than "ordinaries"?

I think, cloning will not be in the stage of making identical twins long. It soon will be used to IMPROVE human genes. First, get rid of common genetic deseases (all kind of sindroms, szhisophrenias, epilepsias, diabetes, etc). Then extend life span by making cholesterol-splitting and cancer-depressing genes, then improving memory (both capacity and quality) and cognitive abilities (a lot to do here).

Whom would you rather hire: good programmer or so-so? ADD or goal-oriented? The one who needs constant attention or the one who is eager to help?

So, I would say that soon after that "non-clones" may have that "discriminated minorities" feeling in their wallets.
