I like the stories and the focus, these are VERY important issues but come on, "CLEAN" Coal? My main criticism is that this survey does not show 3rd party and independent candidates. Lets open the discussion and open the debate! :)

CLEAN Coal..THAT is quite a JOKE! (McCain & Corporate Cronies)
Coal is the cause of all of the Mercury poisoning in ALL of the lakes in the U.S. with mercury..making all fish from them hazardous to eat (esp. children/pregnant Mothers) -NO Thnaks!

Thanks for this site..
