I would say Milwaukee has been fairly liberal. It's the only city in the U.S. to have elected three socialist mayors.

Los Angeles certainly is liberal but the Bay Area has to be the most liberal region in the nation.

For those unfamiliar with NY politics, "Rockefeller Republican" is equivalent to moderate Democat in other areas of the country. Yes, NYS has a tradition of left-leaning Republicans (a more recent example is Dede Scozzafava, the GOPer in Dist. 23 who was ousted by the current hard liners and their radio blowhards).

Also, since you are naming small areas, don't forget NE MN--Duluth & the Iron Range. That's St. Louis, Lake and Cook counties. They don't get any bluer.

Glad to see you pronounce it correctly. They say "Bahston". Can't even say their own city right!

What about the Urban Garden/Urban-Rural Fields land use initiatives there?
I don't see many other cities pursuing it?

What do you think? Part of this is curiosity, part of this is if I ever have to move away from the Great Pacific NW, I want to stay blue.
I think the bigger question should be: If you ever have to leave the Pacific Northwest, do you have to live in the most liberal place or just a liberal place?
