    You know What Would Be Excellent......

    A simple Webpage, listing every vote the two Candidates ever had in their time in the Senate.

    Just simple, Two Master Columns (one per candidate). Each Column would be subdivided into two smaller columns, one for the bill or issue voted on, the other for the guys vote. If the guy sponsored/introduced that bill or issue, it gets a smakk star to show that.

    The sub-column with the bill or issue could be hotlinked so that when someone clicks on it, you get sent off to a copy of that bill or item to peruse if you wish.

    Boy, sure would be nice if Govt. provided such a resourse to the people in such a simple and useable format. Pipe dream, I know.

    That would be nice. Of course, most of these bills are quite complex and have hillariously misleading names --such as a "clean air act" that actually increases pollution and so forth-- so you'd need an attachment to actually spell out the many, many parts of each bill in question.

    Great idea. Are there any really good sources that offer concise descriptions on their views on various issues?

    That's easy for Obama. It was "present" on everything.

    Also, OntheIssues, the one Pauliec mentioned, goes pretty deep into candidates' voting records.

    Warfish,

    This a great website. It shows voting record and which special interest groups support and how they rate candidates.

    Never come across one with a comparison ability like some shopping sites do. That would be a great idea though.
