Obama/Biden & McCain/Palin - How they are/were at home

I would really like people from AK, AZ, IL, and DE to chime in on what the respective candidates do in their home state. This is NOT a discussion on who should win or what their current politics are. This is ONLY what they did in the past and how they either made things better/worst that you know of. I know its not common for people to know exactly how their senators effected them, but you tend to know how you felt about them while they either had a debate in the home state or were on a radio talk show, etc, etc. As for Palin, its a little easier to tell/show how she helped/hurt the AK government being governor, no matter how short her time there has been, but it's much easier to see what a governor has done. I'm really looking for an UNBIASED opinion.

I was watching the debate tonight and I am felt both candidates did really well. I still consider myself independent. But they talk about stuff that is hard to find out the exact truth: so again, maybe the home state people can give their perspectives on the candidates. I just moved to DE so I can not give my take on Biden, even though his office is MAYBE 5 min from me.

[size=20pt]STAY ON TOPIC!!![/size]
There is another thread to bicker.

I found a good website which tells the facts. I dont bother with quotes too much. I look on the voting results
McCain : http://www.ontheissues.org/john_mccain.htm
Palin : http://www.ontheissues.org/Sarah_Palin.htm

Obama : http://www.ontheissues.org/Barack_Obama.htm
Biden : http://www.ontheissues.org/Joe_Biden.htm

Re: Obama/Biden & McCain/Palin - How they are/were at home

Palin fought for Alaskans to get a "energy rebate" to help us pay for our heating oil this winter. So in return all Alaskans (who applied in time) received their annual PFD plus $1200 energy rebate. Total we each received $3269. That money is gonna help alot of families heat their homes throughout the winter.

Cool beans. The only thing Palin scares me more then any of the other 3 is her crazy ass religious views.
