I found this website that details briefly some of the candidates at the forefront of the presidential elections stance on Science, Technology, and Innovation. Both Senator Clinton and Senator Obama have both pledged to increase funding to most fields dealing with Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. On the other hand the information on McCain's stance isn't so clear. I think everyone should check out the link and see how much money and effort their chosen candidate really plans on putting in to our field of study.
oh yeah and info on other candidates and past candidates are also listed on the site.
