In the area of politics, there are many shades of gray (and no, I’m not talking about that viral book). Some are hardcore Republicans and Democrats while others are more middle-of-the-road. Then there are those who can (*gasps*) understand both sides! What a concept. Here are a few famous figures who knocked our socks off when they came out in favor of certain left-leaning views.
Last year, George W. Bush's daughter Barbara
endorsed marriage equality in a PSA.

Lauren Bush Lauren, who is the niece of former president George W. Bush,
produces eco-friendly bags for FEED Projects. She also told us earlier this year that she's been a vegetarian all her life. While eco-friendliness and vegetarianism aren't necessarily at odds with the GOP mindset, her lifestyle does reflect a certain progressiveness.
Meghan McCain is a pro-life Republican,
but supports gay marriage and participated in the NOH8 campaign.
Country/pop singer Carrie Underwood recently said she is
pro- gay marriage, stating, "As a married person myself, I don’t know what it’s like to be told I can’t marry somebody I love, and want to marry." The Baptist added that she and her husband now attend a gay-friendly church.
Kim Kardashian said at this year's White House Correspondents' Dinner
that she is a Democrat. She doesn't have to take a political stance, as she's Kim Kardashian, so it was a surprise to hear that she leans one particular way.
