The Gates probably aren't liberal by any traditional measure. They are more along the lines of pacific-northwest-republicans. Solid moderates. The seniors were active in Republican politics, junior not-so-much, but his political giving has been Republican oriented.

My suspicion is that the giving has been driven by who controls the reins of power, rather than by the Gates' political views.
