Hillary seems more pronounced with socialized healthcare, but Obama was against the war.

Then again, I recall a good point on here mentioning that the soviet union supported war as a method for expansionism of its ideals, and I don't recall the commies being right winged

Somehow we've come to associate warmongering as a conservative trait. Kool aid anyone?

Obama. Hillary. McCain didn't get a rating because he didn't vote enough.

NATIONAL JOURNAL: Obama: Most Liberal Senator in 2007 (01/31/2008)

Someone else posted it yesterday.

That's like someone asking who was more conservative Romney or George Wallace? More of a comment than a question.

Except on healthcare, Obama takes the leftwing cake. On healthcare he recycles Republican talking points and even pages from their play book, such as "Harry and Louise!"

None of them are extreme left, that's for sure. Don't most polls show that most Americans favor some form of universal health care? It's scary to think who the originating poster thinks is a good conservative

So far Obama is winning hands down. I can understand why, he IS indeed the most extreme.

Any more votes?

I wouldn't say any of the three are "extreme".

On paper Obama would be the most leftist, but I'm pretty sure in reallity Hillary Clinton is quasi-Marxist on a lot of her views. I think she is bent on achieveing power, and will do anything to get there. She is just smart enough to know that people would not support her had she come clean on her vision for the country.
