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.
I'm sorry, but this is rewriting history. In light of Obama's obvious limitations, I can understand how supporters would prefer to erase the embarrassing 2008 (And 2009) stuff from the history books. But the reason I, and many others will not forget, is that we saw in the synergy between politics, money, and media adulation the great lie that is the American elite.

So lets play a game. Show me one image by a Bachmann, Santorum, Romney, or Gingrich supporter to rival these two:

Oh, and I could theoretically do this for a thousand years. I will never forget the cult of personality around Barack Obama. It reminded me that history is very much alive, and even my Republic is not beyond the forces which have plagued democracy since its inception.
