You are absolutely correct. You point out very accurately the difference between liberals and conservatives. The libs see mainly in stark progressive terms and then worship at the cult of personalities. Conservatives are much more likely to have a jaundiced eye and evaluate based upon policy and adherence to conservative values. Conservatives are not surprised to see fluctuations in even their own as they view with a skepticism the influence of DC insider political games. Liberals get their man and worship him/her and even if off course on progressive policy seem extremely reluctant to judge on principle and need maintain a cult of personality. In essence conservatism is less prone to worship of man, whereas liberalism fails much on that .
