I voted for Obama twice. I never got my hopes worked up, and I never donated or campaigned for him. The first time I was cautiously optimistic. I thought he could possibly do a few nice things before he started the 2012 campaign. The second time I was voting against Romney, and didn't feel like wasting my vote on a third party candidate. I thought "he couldn't screw up too badly. Not as long as the republican congress refuses to let him do anything."
All in all I'm disappointed. I didn't buy all the hype about him, but I certainly felt like he could turn over a new page after Bush Jr., but it turns out it was all in vain.
I'm pretty sure that America can't get the government it deserves until we do away with the electoral college and go straight to a nation-wide popular vote, and have government funded elections with set spending limits. Otherwise, third parties that resonate with the people will never have a chance at the presidency, and congress will remain 99.9% R and D, plus 1 or 2 independents who side mostly with either R or D.
