Obama, pro-person - McCain, pro-corporation

Have a look at their technology-related policy positions. In practically every case where Obama and McCain differ, McCain takes the pro-corporation position, and Obama takes the pro-person position:

  • Net neutrality? Obama's for; McCain's against.
  • H1-B visas? Obama says enough; McCain wants more.
  • Outsourcing? Obama wants to end tax breaks that reward it; McCain doesn't.
  • Renewable energy? Obama wants to research it; McCain at best pays lip service to it.
Update (10/23): Didn't I tell you this right here two days ago! I like my headline better. Skip that synecdoche.
