Recently, the WSJ Health Blog posted results from a survey that concluded if Obama wins the election, he should work to stabilize the economy before pushing to overhaul health insurance or create cap-and-trade system for greenhouse gas emissions.

That’s OK as far as it goes, but I’m more interested in which presidential candidate — John McCain or Barack Obama — is better for the pharmaceutical industry and why. Specifically, I seek the opinions of people who work within or for the industry.

I don’t want to debate the issues here, so I set up a special 2008 Presidential Election News & Views discussion board on Pharma Marketing Network Forums where we can anonymously debate the pros and cons of Barack Obama vs. John McCain.

I invite you to express your opinions about the candidates and debate the issues in this forum.

You are also invited to take the short, online survey “Who’s Better for Pharma: Obama or McCain?” to answer the questions “Who do you plan to vote for in the 2008 Presidential election?” and “Why?”

Your comments are confidential (anonymous) unless you specifically provide your contact information at the end of the survey and allow me to attribute comments to you personally.
