Isn't that, in a way, the best thing they could possibly have said?

I know very little specific on the US democracy, but I think the answer in every democracy is a definate NO.

One votes to affect national priorities. If a candidate's technical staff is using OSS, then that is very good: They are, naturaly, among the people advising him. But from the candidate a statement of national policy is what's needed, not a statement w.r.t. OSS and campaign efficiency.
