I think that's consistent with what I said. I guess it sort of just depends on what we mean when we say liberal. For what the OP is looking for, a politician like Edwards may be somewhat in line with his/her views aside from his same-sex marriage views.
I will grant that he was considered a moderate democrat by many liberals but my point was simply that politicians/people with liberal to moderate views can survive in what would be considered more rural/conservative areas. Since those areas tend to be more conservative than the big cities, I wouldn't imagine that there would be a problem for the OP with residing in the cities or dealing with the politics of those cities.
Yeah, I guess we were kind of saying the same thing. As a friend of mine was telling me not too long ago, Texas isn't nearly as conservative as Massachusetts is liberal. We're fairly moderate-ish.
Yeah, I think you're right we are saying the same thing. Btw, I love your avatar. I actually got to see him pitch when I was a kid and I know a guy who was at the game when he knocked out Robin Ventura haha. He said it was the best game he'd ever been to.
