Good luck with that.
Anti-war and pro-civil liberties was to the "left" during the Bush years, but are traditional conservative principles, so I wouldn't call that moving to the "left". (Plus liberals are all for allowing Obama to be Bush 2.0 in this regard)
Allowing states to make their own choices on drugs, abortion, and gay marriage is a part of State's right's and also a traditional conservative principle.(10th Amendment)
So no, I wouldn't call it moving to the left, as these positions are all part of a limited government.
