Framing the Window

This reminds me of “Median Voter Theory” (which influenced my own “radical moderate” perspective):

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Median_voter_theory

In General, I’d hope that the Overton Window shifting would evidence an “evolution” in public opinion (e.g. Civil Rights movements succeeding, etc.)… it seems there’s enough extremists on both the left and right (who may think they’re pulling the window) to keep that tug-o-war somewhat stable… but not all issues are clearly left/right… (and some progressives, blind to their own prejudices, may not really know what the future should be like either: this Overton Window “frame” seems to imply that progressives bring evolutions in values).
