RW,

You will be happy to know that I am now an informed conservative according to my results.

Wait. Are these trick questions?

This must be where that ‘flip-flopper’ thing comes from.

There’s something to say about personal growth. I’ve changed my mind on a couple of important issues in my life. Atheist to Christian for instance.

Yet I better understand the argument: Even if I agree with Mitt on everything right now, would he change his positions during the next four years?
