    Is there any easy place to compare candidates on issues?

    I'm basically looking for a big spreadsheet or matrix that lists all the candidates and their positions on important issues. For example, take the Dems...

    Obama
    Clinton
    Edwards
    etc.

    and then, for each, list Healthcare, Abortion, Iraq, Taxes, etc. with a concise position. The same for the Republicans. Thanks.

    I have not found the perfect thing yet but one of the best I found:

    [url]http://www.ontheissues.org/2008/Barack_Obama_Budget_+_Economy.htm[/url]

    Scroll to the bottom for links to other issues and other candiates. Not exacty concise but gives a lot of details.

    This place is pretty good. Also has one of the better candidate selector quizzes that I've seen.

    It's always good to do some research before an election. Ask tough questions.

    Do we as a nation want the fat or skinny end of the bat?

    Rudy #1 which wasn't all that surprising. Next was Romney and then Richardson.
