The One's election was not the start of a movement

Look no further than last week's runoff elections. Saxbe Chambliss crushed his opponent by twenty points (with Sarah 'Cuda's help) and a liberal district in New Orleans elected a conservative Republican, ousting William Jefferson (D-LA). The buzz at NRO is that once Obama's name was not on the ballot, his acolytes stayed home. For one who is supposed to have nearly mystical political skills, one wonders why The One did not spend some time campaigning in Georgia to help pad the Democrat majority in the Senate.
