This is the same thing that put Tony Blair

Calling Dean an ultra liberal is a joke.

I guess it depends on what the definition of "ultra liberal" is. Dean is about as far left as can be and that is why he is popular with that arm of the Democrat party. Then again, I'm sure ultra liberal to some on this forum would be way left of Lenin.

If this is the same thing someone posted a few months ago, and it looks just like it, a lot of people in that thread pointed out that is needs a serious adjustment.

He's on the RIGHT!  Yeah sure  Nuts

If he was ultra liberal he'd be farther down past Kucinich and Sharpton on the left libertarian side, the exact opposite of Bush.
Lenin would be on the top left corner of the grid.

Lenin would be way over to the left, and probably above the horizontal line, but not right up at the top. Stalin, on the other hand, would definitely be in the very top left.

However, with many extreme political positions, the distinction between "right" and "left" often ceases to make sense! If the USSR had been ruled by a far-right party, somebody at the top could have behaved almost exactly like Stalin and still fitted in.

Of course, this is irrelevant to US politics, except to those who want to make extreme comparisons.

It's a shame that our cosiety has shifted so far the the right that all the major Democratic candidates are in the same quadrant as George W. Bush.  Sad
