Being Both Biblical and Egalitarian

I have been haunted by a statement I came across when I was researching my posts on Sarah Palin. More than one blog off-handedly remarked that probably most egalitarians would be voting for Obama. I had to acknowledge that this was quite likely the case. But why? Why should belief in biblical equality entail left-wing political persuasions? Two possible reasons crossed my mind. . . .

I thought being "both biblical and egalitarian" was just being biblical--that's not a joke.

(It's also not an argument; I know that; I wasn't trying to argue.)
