This page contains a huge quantity of invalid markup, so it won't parse.
I can't comment on it until I can make sense of it, and right now, it's
not meaningful in any way I can see.

It took nearly 7 minutes to load, even though we have a private 2Mb line 
to the US here, so it's not meaningful for a lot of people anyway.

The layout is not bad, but a bit too symmetrical for my tastes (just a 
personal feeling :-)

I wasn't able to detect any content, apart from some simple labels
about the political views of a few former US presidents. 

I'm afraid this kind of stuff simply won't cut it in serious business,
but you might get away with it with the political or marketing people 
for a while.
