Liberal governors?

Human Events online lists the Top 10 Liberal Governors. Topping the list? The Louisiana Governor who recently signed an abortion law that doesn't have an exemption for rape or incest. Number 9 is Kathleen Sebelius, who has governed as a fiscal conservative and social moderate. Her crime: suggesting, but not fighting for, small tax increases to pay for education.

Unpopular conservative Republican Bob Taft of Ohio ranks 5th. Somehow not making the list: the Republican governor of Massachusetts who oversaw the establishment of gay marriage (against his will) and a healthcare program that many conservatives called socialist. Of course, he's running for president, and Human Events would rather not ruffle those feathers.
