Is There a Pro-Technology Candidate Out There?

CNET has a pretty interesting article on Joe Biden’s less than stellar record on technology:

By choosing Joe Biden as their vice presidential candidate, the Democrats have selected a politician with a mixed record on technology who has spent most of his Senate career allied with the FBI and copyright holders, who ranks toward the bottom of CNET’s Technology Voters’ Guide, and whose anti-privacy legislation was actually responsible for the creation of PGP.

Well, at least we know who to thank for PGP.  What would we do without Biden and those internets Al Gore invented?

Check out this Voter’s Guide to see how the other candidates rank on technology.  Some of note:

  • Barack Obama:  50%
  • John McCain:  31.25%
  • Hillary Clinton:  33.33%
  • Ron Paul:  80%

Joe Biden–A Brilliant Pick

He’s outspoken, he says crazy things, and he loves attention.

It is inevitable that Biden will soon say something controversial that draws the whole of the media’s attention.  What a great way to create a diversion for a candidate at the top of the ticket who says a whole lot of, well…nothing.

Just because Bush’s Presidency is almost over doesn’t mean that strategery is dead.

Maybe McCain will pick Ron Paul as his VP.  That would be even more ironic.  How funny would it be to see Paul refuse to endorese McCain, even though he’s on the ticket?
