Google's presidential-quote finder

Search giant parses the presidential views so you don't have to

Want to know what the presidential candidates have said about
technology? Or the economy? Or oil prices? Maybe other topics that
you are curious about? Google Labs has set up a nifty Web page,
called In Quotes that retrieves quotes about what the
two candidates said about whatever topic you specify.

Using Google News, it searches newspaper articles that quote
Sen. John McCain or Sen. Barack Obama on the topic you specify. It
then parses the quote from the article (providing a link back to
the original source). Best of all, the candidates' quotes are
placed side-by-side for easy comparison.
