Obama the Hare and Romney the Tortoise

The country is also not quite ready to confess that it went a little crazy in 2008 and voted for the embarrassing banalities of “hope and change” offered by a little-known senator with a thin résumé and little national experience. Again, no voter likes to admit that he was led to the polls in a trance by the mellifluous music of a pied piper.

This, I think, is a huge factor.

Same thing happened with Clinton – it became more and more obvious that he was such a train wreck that his supporters had to double down, rather than admit they had voted for a huge slime ball.
