What I have observed is that Obama's Afghanistan war policy has been to the right of most liberals, and even to the right of some conservatives who think it is time to leave Afghanistan.I don't believe his Afghanistan views *makes* him a centrist, moderate or anything else -
I would disagree. From the liberal perspective, he is only slightly less conservative than Bush. He continued the bailout to the banks, He continued the wars, He extended tax cuts for rich, he chose the GOP's public mandate rather than a public option for health insurance. And, at least on the war in Afghanistan, his policy is more conservative than some other conservatives who think it is time to leave.He *is* a liberal on a deep, fundamental level.
