68. I'm wary of self-described "liberals" sometimes.
People who call themselves "liberals" seem to me to be generally less assertive ideologically than people who identify as progressives. Just a personal observation--no offense to those who prefer "liberal." Colmes is so terribly ill-suited to do political combat with his opponent.
