Found this Political Compass Litmus Test on Dr. Kathleen Reardon's home page via Huffington Post. How would George W. Bush answer? Cheney?:
__When a mistake is made, I don't automatically insist on rigid adherence to the course.
__Power is a dangerous vehicle and I don't abuse it.
__Shaping my personal history is less important to me than constructively shaping the future of this country for all of its citizens.
__When a crisis occurs, the buck does indeed stop here?
__I surround myself with thinkers whose views may differ from my own and I listen and learn from them.
__Honesty and accuracy dictate my interactions with the people at whose behest I serve.
__There is a line at which politics becomes pernicious and I refuse to cross it.
__ War is a last resort.
__ My power is as a negotiator, not as a bully.
__I strive daily to be a person of integrity.
