    Let's start out with the assumption that there's not much difference on the issues between Obama and Romney. I'm going to pick the one who realizes it's cruel to put their dog in a carrier on the roof of a car for a multi-thousand mile trip. Also, I'm probably not going to pick the one who doesn't speak out against his church's practice of proxy baptizing my fellow Jews. That's just for starters.

    From the other article I posted on the Etch A Sketch boost in sales:
    One thing the Etch a Sketch won't do is pick sides in the presidential campaign, he said.

    "We have a left knob and a right knob," he said, "so we neutrally speak to both parties."

    Excerpt:

    Almost all presidential candidates shift their positions on some issues — toward the party base in the primaries, and then toward the center of the electorate if they receive the nomination. But there is not a lot of precedent for a presidential candidate whose shifts were so recent and broad-based.


    In 2002, as well as during his Senate campaign in 1994, Mr. Romney very explicitly ran as a moderate, especially on social issues. His campaign’s Web site in 2002 told voters that he would support “the strict enforcement of gun laws” and recognition of domestic partnership for same-sex couples, that he would “protect the current pro-choice status quo in Massachusetts,” and that he endorsed an increase in the minimum wage.


    Mr. Romney’s campaign was also much different in tone. At times, it previewed the “post-partisan” theme of Barack Obama’s speech at the 2004 Democratic National Convention.


    “Our opponents are tired. Their record is weak. They will retreat to the politics of fear. We will embrace the politics of hope,” Mr. Romney, said upon accepting the endorsement of delegates at the Republican state convention. “My political philosophy is not drawn with narrow partisan lines,” he said during the same speech.
