The shallowness of Obama's support

I've said before that President George W. Bush's support among Republicans was pretty much limited to "at least he kept Gore and Kerry out of the Oval Office." Not really glowing support, but it is now seeming much more deep and solid compared to the level support Barak H. Obama has with his supporters when they are actually asked to think about the issue.
Richard Cohen forces a liberal into that uncomfortable condition for a leftist, actually having to think, with this question:

“Just tell me one thing Barack Obama has done that you admire,” I asked a prominent Democrat. He paused and then said that he admired Obama’s speech to the Democratic convention in 2004. I agreed. It was a hell of a speech, but it was just a speech.
