Presidential Candidates on Net Neutrality

As that I consider Net Neutrality a pretty big deal these days and feel that it is most certainly at-risk I decided to share what each presidential candidate says about Net Neutrality.

"John McCain does not believe in prescriptive regulation like “net-neutrality,” but rather he believes that an open marketplace with a variety of consumer choices is the best deterrent against unfair practices." 

"It needs to stay that way. Barack Obama strongly supports the principle of network neutrality to preserve the benefits of open competition on the Internet. "

It's not very often you see political statements as cut and dried as these.
I doubt this issue will get much air time during the debates this fall, and certainly it shouldn't be the sole basis of anyone's decision, but to me this is a pivotal issue and one that has implications that will echo across the nation for years to come.
