Put your hopes in the dear Leader

We had the Great Hope candidate in Clinton, 1992; and again in Obama, 2008.

Now... Romney is the One who is playing the It's A Big Movement theme. Note especially the musical cadences; always a theme in ads like this.

I know why the candidates do it, on the home stretch of a Change election. Get caught in the crowd. The man on the white horse can save us. (Jonah Goldberg mentioned a thing or two on this phenomenon.)

But when the crowds have silenced and the columns are put away - the man on the horse is, still, just a man; he is, still, a manager type with Bush-league advisors.
