So where is your tipping point on Obama's moves to the center?

Oh what joy I get to write diaries now. So without trying to write one that would go into too many policy issues tonight. I had a question earlier than was left mostly unanswered in another diary. With some many diaries on FISA, abortion and all these controversial or centrist moves by Obama- I was curious about what is the pulse of the community here? It seems extremely fractious on reaching a majority consensus on what principles of the Democratic Party are off the table for Obama to move to the center on.
Of course the more people participate in this call to honest discussion - hopefully we will see hints of the common ideals among democrats here. A rec would also help to boost more participation. (As I shamelessly pander to ask for it). So without further adieu:
What is the tipping point in terms of a policy you will not compromise on if the senator moves his position on such policy and to the center?
Question: What after he visits Iraq he calls the surge a success in any measure. What if Obama moves away from his 16 month all combat troops home firm policy to maybe I will reconsider that timeline or a timeline period? Would you still be on board or will you throw a yellow flag on the field?Update [2008-7-7 1:53:59 by roxfoxy]: quick note: My question about tipping point is not when you will flip and vote McCain rather when do you see yourself as being activists( because of said policy change) of sorts- similar to actions of much of the FISA dissenters on the net.
