20. DU (in general) loved Obama

until he got inaugurated and had to start governing the entire country with obstructionist Republicans throwing sand in the gears every which they could whenever they could and he had to compromise and/or couldn't deliver on all of his campaign promises (there were some unforced errors/mistakes but all Presidents make them at some point too)- though he still got a lot of things done in the first two years that he has continued to vigorously defend against the Republican wrecking crew. No matter who gets elected, if they don't have a fully Democratic Congress, he/she won't be able to deliver on everything and will have to compromise and will get similarly shredded here.
