I guess we're a center-left nation after all

According to Forbes magazine, you're a liberal if you subscribe to "some or all of the following":
  • progressive income taxation
  • universal health care of some kind
  • opposition to the war in Iraq, and a certain queasiness about the war on terror
  • an instinctive preference for international diplomacy
  • the right to gay marriage
  • a woman's right to an abortion
  • environmentalism in some Kyoto Protocol-friendly form
  • and a rejection of the McCain-Palin ticket
I love the "certain queasiness about the war on terror" line. I suppose that's a euphemism for "opposes torture". And "rejection of the McCain-Palin ticket" alone puts 53% of all voters in the liberal category.
