Scale of one to ten, ten being ultra liberal, how do you rate Obama and Hillary?



Or make 10 whatever it takes to get them both on the scale. Thanks

Obama is like a 5.0 or so

Hillary is probably a 6.25

You really only think Obama is a 5?

how are we defining "liberal"?

the modern definition of regulating markets and personal freedoms? he's a big crony capitalist and has been really bad for civil liberties. he's also a hawk who has been quite aggressive with the military

if you're likening "liberal" to mean "authoritarian" then he is closer to a 7.5

I would say six, based on what he has done since being in office. He will ramp it up soon though.

More of my line of thinking.

I think Obama is an 8, but I think it is not really reflected in his policies. He has been governing as a 6. With his "tax the rich" approach he is headed back toward his normal 8 since he has nothing to lose.

Hillary, not really sure. Can't really judge her by what she has done at SOS.

you really couldn't put Obama past possibly a 6, he may seem very liberal but compared to many others he's not even close to a 10 imo

classic liberal or progressive liberal?

Hillary is more "progressive" than Obama. more stubborn too.

Id say Hillary 8, Obama 7 on the libertarian to progressive scale.

Obama is about a 7.5 effectively. Ideologically, he might be between 9-10.

Obama is the most liberal senator and POTUS so I give Obama a 8.5. Hillary a 6 because she at least pretends to be moderate sometimes. Bloomberg a 9.

If 1 is slightly liberal then Obama at heart is an 8 or 9. What he's been able to pass is about a 5 or 6.

Hillary at heart is an 8.

You can't rate them on what they've gotten passed though legislative bodies comprised significantly of Republicans and some more moderate Democrats.

Obama 8
Hillary 7

I think both would probably be down with single payer, and healthcare is probably were they're most liberal. Neither is that liberal on on foreign policy. Hillary maybe would be more fiscally responsible.
