The list includes former ultra-Conservative President Ronald Regan as a former Liberal. Also, in this list is current GOP Presidential nomination hopeful and former Democrat Rick Perry. Chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank in Kansas City right wing Herman Cain was a Democrat. Another flip-flopper and Republican Presidential nominee hopeful, Minnesota Representative, Michelle Bachman as a left wing liberal back in high school.

Rounding out the top is former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice who was a Democrat prior to her move over to the GOP.
