I love Oregon but life is short and I want to experience living somewhere else for a while.

My criterion are this:

1) Not in the west. So Colorado, the Southwest etc is out of the question.
2) Not a place that is hot and humid 1/2 the year or more.
3) Ideally at least a little bit of snow.
4) Somewhere I can live without a car.
5) A place I could rent or at least roomshare for $500/month or less.
6) A liberal or at least centrist political climate. Ideally socialist.
7) Somewhere with at least an OK job market.

So basically probably somewhere in the Northeast, but a highland climate in the South or somewhere fairly progressive in the Midwest isn't out of the question either. I was thinking of Boston but heard it's very expensive, and also was thinking of Portland Maine but it's quite small and also expensive with little work.
Cincinnati is a good option if you are planning to live downtown. The city itself is pretty liberal, but the suburbs are conservative, though that is slowly changing. The Banks is a great place to be and they aren't even half way finished with it yet.

How hot/humid are Cincy summers? that's a big issue to me.

It varies. I remember in 2009 it rarely got into the upper 80s with humidity until late August. In 2006 it was hot almost the whole summer. We are on the border of a lot of climates so I can't give you a straight answer. Usually it won't be hot/humid until mid-late July and it will last into early September. It's very pleasant from then into early November. Also from late March to July. The northeast will have slightly better weather, but things are much cheaper here.
