Rhetorical Q&A ODS Q.E.D. PDQ

Q (Andy McCarthy):

Will There Be an Obama Derangement Syndrome?
A (Victor Davis Hanson):
I think we are slowly (and things of course could change) beginning in retrospect to look back at the outline of one of most profound bait-and-switch campaigns in our political history, predicated on the mass appeal of a magnetic leader rather than any principles per se. He out-Clintoned Hillary and followed Bill's 1992 formula: A young Democrat runs on youth, popular appeal and charisma, claims the incumbent Bush caused another Great Depression and blew Iraq, and then went right down the middle with a showy leftist veneer.
Feel free to leave your own examples of ODS in comments.
