Presidential Candidate Issues Scorecard

For those seeking one person's quick scorecard view of where the current field of candidates stand on a variety of issues:

I think it's an interesting conversation piece, but I strongly believe that any candidate for public office needs to be looked at much more carefully than merely a series of supports/opposes or check marks on certain issues. Context, history, background, rationale, and the subtleties of one's stances are much more informative than merely stating that Candidate X supports or doesn't support Issue Y. And while these issues may be salient to many, it is by no means a comprehensive view of what one should consider in a presidential nominee.
