From Seth Davis's interview which is already fanshotted and frontpaged:
I asked Wooden if he was sympathetic to Bill Walton's opposition to the Vietnam War. "I'm not going to say I was opposed to the Vietnam War. I'm going to say I'm opposed to war," he said. "But I'm also opposed to protests that deny other people their rights ... Taking over the administration building when there's people who have jobs in there to do, I think that's not right."
Not wanting to be presumptuous, I asked if I could delve further into his politics. "Go right ahead," he said. He told me he considers himself a liberal and is a registered Democrat, but he has voted often for Republicans, including twice each for Nixon and Reagan. He also said he voted for Barack Obama. "I didn't vote for him because I thought he was outstanding," he said. "I just liked him better than the others, that's all."
I don't think I have read those details about the Coach anywhere else before.
It's not a surprise considering the demographics of Bruins Nation. Certainly we are all going to chuckle even mroe next time someone tries to make "liberal" into some kind of bad word.
