Anecdotally, it seems most folks in our respective fields support Obama over the remaining field and would be willing to help for free (i.e. massive free resources), but what would such a project look like? Tools that both sides could use "equally" would not achieve the desired end. Philosophically, could the Open Source community support one side in a competition such as this? What other issues does this raise?" Link to Original Source
