    Only what I have read at his website and from the local news channels comparison charts ......................

    Foreign Affairs:

    Supports more monitoring of nuclear technology to make sure it stays out of terrorist hands. Believes more needs to be done to stop conflict in Africa.

    Homeland Security:

    Wants Homeland Security money targeted more towards high-risk areas. Supports better protection for chemical plants. Wants more tracking of spent nuclear fuel so it doesn't end up in terrorist hands.

    Immigration:

    Supports a fence along Mexican border. Supports tougher laws to keep illegals from finding jobs. Supports granting citizenship to illegals already here as long as they pay fines and back taxes.

    Economy:

    Supports tax incentives to companies that keep jobs in the US. Believes NAFTA needs to be renegotiated to protect American economy.

    Health:

    Supports universal health care, and believes government should buy prescription drugs in bulk to reduce costs. Wants hospitals to be graded on performance and make a switch to cost-effective, computerized record-keeping.

    Gun Control:

    Supports bans on assault weapons and concealed weapons.

    Same Sex Marriage:

    Supports civil unions, but not same-sex marriage.

    He is reared and ready to change the direction that we as a nation are heading in. I am not just talking about the environment (which for some reason everyone says is just a liberal issue), I mean all of the issues that plague our nation as a whole today. Protecting our country from world threats, stabilizing and pushing our economy, cutting our reliance of foreign oil, and many more. The people who tell you he is just a liberal who will raise taxes, have not studied the facts. We have serious issues approaching us at an alarming rate. If we do not change our present course, than whether it be war, the economy, or the environment, we are looking down a dark dark road to come.

    I know quite a bit about his political positions. They appear quite similarly to Sen. Clinton's in most respects.

    He has a slightly different plan for universal health care, but I don't think that makes much difference, since the congress will surely chop up any plan before they pass it. He's in more of a hurry than she is, to remove our troops from Iraq. In his speeches, he tends to favor a foreign policy based more on negotation, while she emphasizes a "tough" approach, but I don't know if that will actually translate into a real difference. Both are committed to civil rights and women's rights. Both favor civil unions for gays, but not gay marriage. Both favor a pathway to citizenship for illegal aliens.

    EDIT: Thanks VBONIC, great link!

    Honestly I don't know anything about his Political Positions.

    However, I can also say that about ALL the candidates. I have yet to hear one that has a thought or ideal and stick with it.
