Sounds like Chicago would be your best bet. I would also suggest Houston and Dallas, but there are plenty of strip malls in both cities (though not so much in their respective cores). Perhaps Philadelphia? Philly is definitely a Democrat town, but not uber-liberal the way SF and Seattle are. Also, believe it or not, Los Angeles has a pretty large moderate population. Just depends on what part of the city you live in.

We are hosting Gay Games 9, our city created a domestic partnership registry, our mayor recently proposed new gun legislation (to the dismay of the tea partiers in the state) if those things tell you anything. There has long been a spirit of inclusion and cooperation here. Many of our public institutions (art museums, marketplaces) were built with populist ideals, and have free admission. This has also historically been a Union town, and it still carries a lot of populist values that the unions stood for. Shaker Heights, a suburb of Cleveland was recently determined to be the most liberal town in Ohio. Other liberal areas are Cleveland Heights, Lakewood, along with all of Cleveland proper.
Having just moved to Cleveland Heights from a very militantly liberal city, I wholeheartedly agree with this evaluation. Cleveland is just the right amount of liberal for me.

Life is too short to let politics run your life.
I agree with this to a point. Sometimes if the politics run the place in which you live and have an influence as to how you live regarding things like taxes, laws and issues that may affect your everyday life, they can play an important part in your well being and you won't be happy there.
