Electoral Compass USA

According to the Electoral Compass, I'm closest to Barack Obama and furthest from Fred Thompson. I am totally not getting a Conservative Senate appointment now.

I'm sure I would have been right next to Kucinich or Paul if they were on there....

While I didn't see Kucinich, Ron Paul is the guy on the line for the "Economic Right".

He's just slightly north into the social liberal zone.

I think everyone should have to fill out one of these before they vote - on either side of the border. It brings a certain clarity and strips away the politics of persona.

I, of course, was way off in the upper left hand corner - and also closest in agreement with Obama. I suspect the vast majority of Canadians, even most Conservatives, would find themselves somewhere in that upper left quadrant, and all but a tiny fraction would be above that centre line.

Because yes, we really are that different from most Americans.
