Hi everyone. I want to take this opportunity to tell you that I am helping to launch a new blog by Care2. It’s called the Care2 Election Blog, and I will be the primary blogger. I hope you’ll stop by and check it out. THIS IS A LINK TO MY FIRST POST. Todays post is on…Another veto by Bush for SCHIP.
I’ll be here at the Care2 Election Blog each day with posts on the latest election news, political commentary and, of course, will address campaign issues that are especially important to the Care2 community, with an emphasis on non-profits. Since this is Care2’s first blog, I hope to get as much feedback from the members of the community as possible…and I look forward to hearing all of your comments and suggestions (so please…don’t be shy). — read my full first post here
If you are not already familiar with Care2, you should go over and check them out. It’s a site that makes it easy to take action on issues that are important to you.

If you want to just quickly and easily find out what candidates best reflect your opinion on the issues, then you are in luck. There are many of these types of sites now available, and the newest to the political quiz arena is GlassBooth. I came across this link at Political Safari, while researching for a post on my newest blog The Political Voices of Women (if you haven’t already, I hope you’ll check it out).
This is from the GlassBooth.org Blog…
There are over 3,000 pieces of information about candidate stances spread across 90 questions in the Glassbooth back end. To create any one question, every single candidate needs to have made a statement or vote on it in the public record. Thus, while it might be easy to find out what Barack Obama thinks about universal health care, it is much more difficult to find what Duncan Hunter thinks about the Alternative Minimum Tax. Basically, assembling the back end was no small task.
Working with On The Issues and a research team of a dozen volunteers, I figure the breakdown is as follows:
-Each question takes about three hours to research
-90 questions multiplied by three hours is 270 hours.
So ask yourself: Do you have 270 hours to find out where every single candidate stands on today’s important issues?
