[[category:comparisons]]This page is for discussions of the relative merits of the two major-party candidates for the [[2008 US presidential race]], [[John McCain]] and [[Barack Obama]], and their respective vice presidents [[Sarah Palin]] and [[Joe Biden]].
===Objections to McCain===
See [[John McCain/objections]]
===Objections to Obama===
The only serious objections to Obama apply far more intensely to McCain:
* Overtly [[religious]] ([[Christian]]), and has been known to pander to a religious audience – but at least does not seem to be a literalist in his beliefs; McCain, though, is far more overtly religious, and has ties to a number of [[Christofascist]]s, most notably [[John Hagee]]
* Voted for the [[FISA]] bill containing immunity for the telecomm companies (who illegally collaborated with George Bush in [[warrantless wiretapping|warrantless eavesdropping]] on Americans), despite having pledged to filibuster it – but McCain is far less likely to support the [[US Constitution]] over the [[Holy War on Terror]].
For other objections which are easily refuted (or that make no sense but seem to be popular), see [[Barack Obama]].
