Q: You talk about how the radical conservatives have distorted the term "liberalism." What's your definition of liberalism?
 Keeping church and state separate.
 Fighting concentrations of economic power that undermine democracy.
 Expanding social insurance, including health care.
 And extending the reach of international law and human rights.
These principles all interact. They have to do with the interdependence of all of us.
