I am a retired lawyer. I live in London with my partner and two cats. I am a centrist, an admirer of Tony Blair, and a rather uncomfortable member of the Labour Party. I find it impossible to locate myself on the US political spectrum. I don't like President Obama's foreign policy, nor did I like the way he got elected, by building a coalition that had no place for the majority of the population. But Republicans scare me: you are too ideological for my taste. In 2008, had I been American, I would have voted for Obama, but only because the Republican candidate was unconvincing - it was very sad to see that John McCain was past his best. The last straw was the choice of Sarah Palin as running mate. She would have been genuinely a heartbeat away from the Presidency, an utterly irresponsible choice. Like Peter Robinson I hope a good candidate emerges, but I shan't hold my breath.
By the way, I post under my own name. You can Google me if you'd like to know more about me.
