According to Science and Nature
No matter which party is elected to the White House, it won't be as bad as the last 8 years. Both candidates support science and technology, although my take is that Obama has surrounded himself with a larger and better stable of advisors. While corn ethanol is a big mistake, at least Obama doesn't want to teach Intelligent Design. When McCain says to base air pollution standards on 'sound economics and science', that says to me if he would seek reasonable advice as President, he probably would not take it. We won't even talk about the train wreck that would occur if McCain drops dead on the job. Let me just report here that Nature, the British equivalent to our Science journal, has cast its imaginary ballot for Senator Obama.
