    I hear you, but as long as the label "conservative" in the US encompasses people like Palin and Issa and the rest of the clown show, applying the same label to Obama is a real stretch.

    What you're getting at, of course, is where the edges of the Overton Window are, and if it's placed elsewhere, Obama might count as a conservative, while the wingnuts count as insane. Which is where it ought to be, and that's precisely what I think is missing.

    Absolute power corrupts absolutely.
