They're both pretty moderate. Obama is significantly more liberal than Hillary. People just can't seem to get beyond soundbites.

And really, what went wrong in American education where one could POSSIBLY think either Democratic candidate is socialist, much less communist? Some people need to go back and have a little chat with their middle school government teachers...

Moderate in which ways? They seem pretty socialist to me and a lot of people seem to agree these two are very far left.

So I am wondering in what ways are they moderate? What issues?

Anyone who thinks either one is a "socialist" or "communist" needs to educate themselves on what those terms really mean. LOL.

Both want control of your health. I'd say neither is communist. They're authoritarian.

How Michael Savage, a right wing fostered poll taking a shot at Democrats by inferring they're Communists/Socialists.

Perhaps I should start one asking who's more of a fascist, McCain or Romney.

McCain. Giulliani (Power is about Authority) would be a better choice.

Fascism is an authoritarian political ideology (generally tied to a mass movement) that considers the individual subordinate to the interests of the state, party or society as a whole. Fascists seek to forge a type of national unity, usually based on (but not limited to) ethnic, cultural, racial, religious attributes. The key attribute of fascism is intolerance of others: other religions, languages, political views, economic systems, cultural practices, etc.
