For specific resource types there is possible other stuff to visualize. 
Imagine a resource which is counted differently than a quantitive summation, 
like for example extent. You can show how much each forum is covered by each 
position, counting the differences which are discussed there. This would add 
another bar, showing the forums with most coverage and on mouse over another 
line which shows the fraction of coverage an voter (activist) has compared to 
the whole position. 
@Alex Think about a vote tree with shifts, happening especially often on the 
lower levels. The position's end-candidates therefore win or lose in time and 
not only when they personally pledge something.
Thanks for your mockup btw., it visualized very clearly what you meant. I 
think that there is maybe something better than as a meter for the history 
bar, but I might be wrong. Do you have an idea of how to make the 
time/historical aspect clearer? I am not talking about emblems, icons or 
colors yet, just the meter.
