Obama is a different breed
Check out Andrew Sullivan's quotation and discussion of a speech by Barack Obama on giving religion-derived opinions their fair place in political discourse.

During his Senate campaign Obama, on prompting from a Chicago doctor whose religion led him to be against abortion and gay marriage, removed from his website the usual Democratic language about "right wing idealogues" against abortion, replacing it with a fair and honest description of why Obama is pro-choice.

If only more political discourse was conducted on this honest and more intellectual level, rather than boiling opinions down to bullet points.
