    Wow! Great! And just what is Obama's voting record? We all know that Obama had to move to the center to win the election. On the other hand, unlike Clinton which was a centrist until congress pulled him to the left, Obama was the most liberal member of the senate. Do you really believe that he will reamin in the center? If so, I have a red donkey that you may want to buy.

    I've never said Obama's a socialist or a marxist, but I would like to laugh out loud at some of the names on that list.

    Bonior - union lap dog, who aside from 4 years in the Air Force has never worked a day in his life that didn't entail sucklin' from a govt. teat. Has never had to make a payroll.

    Granholm - see "Bonior" above (sans the military experience)

    Reich - see "Granholm" above

    Villaraigosa - see "Granholm" above. His only other qualification for being included in the "braintrust" was that his name ends with a vowel.

    Union leaders can sleep tight tonight knowing that the federal govt. is about to foot the bill so their unskilled and uneducated brothers and sisters can still pull in $70k a year sticking tab A into slot B in a POS car that nobody wants to buy.

    From the recent reading I've done, I don't think that Robert Rubin's record at Citigroup has been at all stellar.

    This Right wing talking point comes from one publication and that is the National Journal. The same National Journal who in 2004 said John Kerry was the most liberal senator. An editor for the magazine later said the rankings are "Disconcerting because the shorthand used to describe our ratings of Kerry and Edwards is sometimes misleading -- or just plain wrong." http://firstread.msnbc.msn.com/archi...31/625886.aspx

    I think a clearer record would be to look at his lifetime record while in the Senate and see where he stacks up there. You can find that here. http://www.progressivepunch.org/memb...eSort=lifetime

    I realize that rankings systems are subjective and can be manipulated alot of different ways. It is probably somewhere in between these two rankings that Obama really stands

    I think it is interesting that the 10 different topics I looked at Hillary was more liberal the BHO.

    The election is history, and it's time to move on.

    Get over it, or be run over by it...
