    Extreme to some of the people, such as You Star, means solidly right ring.

    Moderate Conservatives are "normal republicans", Strong conservatives are "extreme", ACTUAL extreme people get labeled extreme as wel tieing them to strong conservatives. Moderates and strong liberals are "average" while extreme liberals are "Very liberal".

    Gotta remember, when talking with some of our most partisan left leaning posters, you've got to skew the scale to their view point. McCain attempted to appeal to conservatives by favoring some social issues and not wanting to raise taxes on the rich, thus he's "EXTREME" because you know...a rational look at the political spectrum in this country definitely puts that on the "extreme" end

    And Obama picking an old, washington elite, white guy liberal hawk was....an honest and truthful pick of who he thought would do the job best?

    :

    Guess what, EVERY Presidential candidate generally panders with their VP pick and does it for political reasons. If you think Obama's pick of Biden was anything but cold calculated political strategy I have some land in Florida I'd like to sell you.

    So what, you're saying that stating "We won, so on that issue I trump you." would be no way to run a country?
