4. I'll second that!
I just visited Madison this past spring to attend my cousin's wedding. I didn't want to come home. Wonderful place.

Oregon is also a terriffic place and much of it is very liberal.

12. I'll second Rochester.
Along with it's neighbor 80 miles to the south, Ithaca, these cities have been liberal oasis(es)? in upstate New York; with delegations that have ushered in some fine progressive legislation.

Both cities pattern the Richard Florida model for progressive, successful places to live...Diverse culture, educational excellence, technology based emerging businesses, and progressive governments.

Except for the snow thing...

19. Philadelphia
Philly has a lot of advatages. First, you hardly ever run into a Republican in downtown Philly! It's affordable and liveable, and within a couple of hours of all the other major East Coast cities.
