I am putting this poll up as an example of a geographic based question which would not be moved to the Off Topic Board. It is clearly based on political preferences, not geographic preferences based on other factors, such as climate or culture or non political ambiance. Absent focusing on the politics, geographic based preference questions will be moved to the Off Topic Board. Thanks.

I chose these three cities with quite liberal politics, so this poll isn't merely an ideology poll, but is perhaps a bit more subtle, involving more process, corruption, competence, and priority issues, and so forth.

I know nothing about Seattle politics, but I went with it because those of NYC and LA strike me as absolutely atrocious.

Well, I don't know, NYC seems to be managed pretty well, but I take your point. Seattle politics is probably more honest and transparent, and no doubt more focused on "green" issues. I was thinking of adding Chicago, but I figured that it would pretty much strike out. It might only get Muon2's vote, out of regional loyalty. Tongue

NYC had Giuliani, so I'll give it the hat tip, though Bloomberg's nanny-statism and De Blasio's antics aren't my cup of tea.

Seattle may soon become a two-party city of Democrats vs. Socialists, and even if you don't like that prospect, it is certainly the most intriguing of any of these cities.
