What are some good websites that provide unbiased information on the Candidates for the 08 election?

I used this site when I had to do a project on the Massachusetts Gubernatorial race last year.

Wikipedia is good for seeing candidates' stances on all the issues

I agree. Wikipedia is good for almost anything.

I also like this comparison website a lot:
http://www.thebostonchannel.com/compare-candidates/index.html

Youtube is the greatest thing ever for actually hearing the candidates speak.

Looking for unbiased political opinions is like asking Bostonians what they think of A-Rod leaving the Yankees.

I've never seen a more nonpartisan site than this one. Too bad it only covers foreign policy.

opensecrets.org is a great resource for figuring out where candidates get their money, which, in many cases, is far more telling than what their stances may be on certain issues.

From what I can tell so for ontheissues.org seems pretty unbiased. Most of their information are direct quotes from the candidates.

The only problem I have with ontheissues.org is its emphasis on voting records, which IMO are misleading.
