1. Always amazing to actually see the charts and the info on the candidates
and to realize that most people shouldn't be supporting who they do. Time to do your research and forget M$M and baby kissers.. Time to really learn and vote for what you want. Empty rhetoric is not going to help us.

2. I completely reject that argument
It assumes that the only thing that matters is a politicians positions on the issues. I think there is much more that ought to be considered in evaluating politicians.

For one thing, they have records. Accomplishments should count for something. Character counts, also. An ability to campaign is another attribute a succesful candidate needs.

3. Useful chart - thanks for posting. It necessarily simplifies some
issues but is a great starting point.

5. No nuance - Richardson says troops out in 09, EdwardsObamaClinton say maybe 2013ish

But all three have the same 'phased withdrawl' icon.
