those who rate obama 8+, you aren't giving very much more room for more liberal. And I can assure you there are individuals more liberal than obama.

I would say like a 5.5 or 6. Hillary is about the same.

Elizabeth warren is like a 7.

ideologically the clintons aren't even close to obama - their poltical convictions ebb and flow with public opinion. for example, I doubt one of the clintons would have been as likely to pass ACA because of the public opposition to it. Their political careers are far more important than their principles relative to obama, which is why he was always the inherently more dangerous candidate

ETA: you really have to separate their principles vs their actions. the only reason hillary might seem more liberal is that she's never been forced to move to the center while in office, like both bill and obama have

Depends on what you mean by "liberal." Neither one is a classical liberal and I don't believe that either cherishes personal freedoms at all. Both believe in using the power of the state to placate the masses while concentrating power in Washington, DC. Give the people their bread and circuses.
