Liberal vs Progressive

Senator Hilary Clinton is asked if she would define herself as a liberal. I was recently called by a national newspaper who said quite openly to me, 'I am calling you because I wanted an alternative liberal viewpoint'! Not quite sure if I was to be offended but I did feel at unease that I was being boxed in this way. Are the narrow minded conservatives the mainstream viewpoint then? Who decided these paradigms? The progressive voices in Islam are the mainstream...it is just a matter of time before we all realise it:) If you kill one force of liberty another wave will emerge!
