I would like to know what city anyone could list on the east coast or midwest, except in the most extreme northern areas, that is progressive, and is somewhere between not overly conservative, but not so bohemian liberal, most would not fit in even if they were a liberal type. I have been told Atlanta fits that description, but then I am told the traffic will make you want to leave the first day you live there. As in progressive I mean, keeping up to some attempt at dealing with traffic issues, a decent downtown, walkable neighborhoods, or greenways, bike paths, parks, a strong economy not anti business but not so at the expense of every inch of land either. It does not have to be a large metro area. I probably described Portland to some extent anyway, but its not in the east or midwest, need some help.
