I found this really interesting... Particularly in what was avoided by each side.

A comparison of how often speakers at the two presidential nominating conventions used different words and phrases, based on an analysis of transcripts from the Federal News Service.

It's pretty sad though, to see the term "Science" barely get a blip...
