    Barack Obama. And yeah, I'm sure one could find a way to insist that noreally, Obama is/was a centrist. But I don't think he campaigned that way, and certainly his supporters didn't view him that way. At most I think you could argue that he's moved to the center since being elected.

        Obama never campaigned as a huge liberal. He marketed himself as a centrist, which is why he was elected.
