Hey... I'm really bored so I figure I'll share this just super exciting info! (not) John Kerry's TMA 757 missed the turn for the Runway in EUG...and we don't have a big enough tug here, so the aircraft may attempt to use reverse thrust sopposibly... Or else a tug will be brought in from PDX I suppose!

I think he meant right-thinking as in "correct or appropriate", not right as in "conservative."
But I believe the word is "Centrist" as in taking ideas from both liberal and conservative.
For instance, a person might be supportive of gay rights but be completely opposed to abortion. Or someone might champion feminist causes but think that environmentalist groups are completely out in left field.
I believe there are a lot of people in the general public like this, but politicians tend not to be because special interest groups tend to team up and scratch each others' backs.
Politicians find it hard to be elected or even nominated running to the right on some issues and to the left on others because they generally need to tow the party line on the vast majority of issues to get properly funded.
Arnold Schwarzenegger tends to be more liberal when it comes to abortion and gay rights, but he tows the Republican party line on defense and fiscal conservatism.
