Graph comparing your healthcare views with Presidential candidates

Health Central has put together an interactive graph for comparing your views on a few key areas of the healthcare debate with the expressed views or plans of the various Presidential candidates.

It’s not very in-depth, but it’s reasonably edifying and somewhat entertaining (particularly the transitions form topic to topic). It also includes the views of various individuals as well (some health care professionals, some not).

Oh look, I can embed it:

    An interesting exercise! At least I’ve learned one thing: Ron Paul is off his rocker to be a free market extremeist on everything except for Stem Cell research, where he’s completely in favor of total restriction. As Ben said: “A morally conservative, but an extreme libertarian…this …. does … not … compute!” 🙂 Wait, is this sorta like Ren? lolol

    It’d be neat if someone took the various screenshots and animations and made a flash animation or something so I didn’t have to do too much work. I kinda want someone to do it for me – I’m too lazy to actually go to the effort of pushing buttons and clicking things. Oh, and of thinking for myself. I don’t want to do that either.

    @Toben: Paul’s views on Stem Cell research might be for public safety concerns, and societal corruption. Then again, they might be because aliens have beamed this directive into his brain and he has no choice but to obey. I know this because I used to be a dentist on the alien ship and now inhabit the body of a local geek in Ron Paul’s general vicinity, to make sure he keeps his word.

    Toben, you think I’m morally conservative?

    Wayne, if you’re that lazy then it doesn’t really matter because the voting process itself requires you to click things and push a button — at least it did for me today.
