A quick, concise look at where the candidates stand on issues. Roll your mouse over the issues listed on the left, like abortion, and education, and a nice little mouseover script pops up each candidate's platform regarding this issue. Nice!

I just enjoyed the little "In Depth" box beside the Fox news logo... Ha ha... IRONY!

Am I the only one who thinks a 4-line, 20-word factoid doesn't really qualify as "in-depth" in the first place?

And, um, not that I'm the biggest Harry Browne fan, but he comes off as downright boorish here.

Also, I can't believe Bush's plans on taxation haven't been outlined to at least some degree. (I'm sure he himself is vague on them, but isn't there a position paper someplace with some details?)

Tsk, tsk.. I was admiring the nice javascript work here and then i looked at the graphics... jpgs for the TEXT on the left side. OK, I'm probably just being overly picky here, but jpgs are terrible for straight text. And gif would have compressed better too. Oh well.

Interesting order to put the candidates in. Perhaps Murdoch’s first pick on top, his last on bottom?

I'd guess alphabetical.

Yeah, alphabetical. I really doubt Murdoch takes any personal interest whatsoever in a detail like the order of candidates in a list.
