[show]Despite the Right wing-to-Libertarian-leaning views that the "Stephen Colbert" character often espouses on the show, in his private life, the real Stephen Colbert considers himself a Democrat: "I'm a Democrat. I'm not asking anybody to vote for Democrats or Republicans. I say everyone should vote for both candidates -- except me. Just let me vote for (2004 Democratic presidential nominee John) Kerry.
