You're forgetting that the "Obama crowd" comprised only a portion of the dems. Most of the Clinton supporters were well aware that Obama had flaws. Indeed, a lot of people who supported Obama were also aware of his flaws. (I am NOT claiming you can't dig up something silly some Obama supporter somewhere said, but I can find equally silly things said by supporters of ANY of the GOP candidates, from Bachmann to (blurg) Santorum. The GOP as a whole may be aware that their candidates are flawed, but each of them has a set of hardcore supporters who don't see such flaws.
