In your blog you say:

"Pete faces an uphill battle in conservative Utah, and I’m not yet sure if
he's conservative enough for me. (I like his positions on technology,
science, education, and alternative fuel sources, but I need to learn
about a few more issues.)"

In all honesty, I don't understand the distinctions between conservatives
and liberals that self-professed conservatives and liberals label each
other with. Every time I've tried to look at them, they seem to be
artificially placed by the opposing side.

So, I ask, what makes a person "conservative enough" for you?


My inferiority complexes aren't as good as yours.
