    So in your view, is Obama a leftist, centrist, or right winger? This is taking way too long.

    I understand that lefties see things in a worldwide perspective (workers unite! ) but we are discussing American politics, so thats where the discussion should lie.

    Like I said, I think he's an American liberal, but not an American Leftist.

    Although I do not think your spectrum really captures it, I will play with your spectrum. He would be on the Left as you would be on the Right.

    The Conservative Right is nothng like the Taliban. The Taliban actually ran a country. The Conservative agenda has never been applied in any country and with good reason. It sucks and isn't never will be a viable way to run modern country.
    Now that we have our country back on track after the last "compassionate conservative" clown brought it all down, the last thing we will do is let them behind the wheel again.
