Let's face it . . . Any principled conservative would be run out of politics long before he got within a thousand miles of the White House.

Thankfully, the same thing usually applies to hard-core liberals, too. Mike Dukakis is one exception I can think of. That ACLU candy-@ss somehow slipped through the cracks -- and promptly got trounced in 1988 by a guy who will be remembered as one of the most limp-wristed, mediocre presidents this nation has ever had.

Dukakis? How about Jean Francois Kerry? He's more liberal than Ted Kennedy, and yet came fairly close to replacing GWB.

We are BARELY majority Republican, and yet people here are upset that the White House and Congress aren't majority Conservative. The country is not majority conservative. I read somewhere recently about estimates that Liberals - Moderates - Conservatives are something like 20% - 50% - 30%. That sounds fairly accurate.

And where would you place Kerry on your scale if "Mike Dukakis is one exception?" In the mushy middle along side Bush? Kerry's voting record in the Senate places him IMO right along side Dukakis as a hard-core liberal and next to the looney left crook Al Gore once he advanced to the national scene, but let's just call them all what they are - socialists.
