TED strives for ideas that are free from religious and political influences. They seem to like controversial ideas to spur thinking, but they still aim for neutrality in many senses.
But the transcript of this talk doesn't seem too terribly politically charged--at least, not as much as some other TED talks. Timing (this being an election year) should hardly be an issue when discussing/releasing ideas in TED's spirit. Besides, everyone is going to hear about this through news outlets and (rightfully) associate it with TED anyway.
