How liberal is Obama (and other Illinois politicians)?

Boris, at the red/blue blog tells us the answer http://redbluerichpoor.com/blog/?p=54

Obama as an Illinois state senator was very liberal, but there were others substantially more liberal still. Of all 295 incumbents who served from 1996-2004 in Illinois, State Senator Obama ranked in the 14th percentile on my liberalism scale. In the Democratic party, he ranked in the 27th percentile.
