I've never seen such a dismal losing candidate. [View all]

Not only has Romney disgraced himself post election. But I have never seen a candidate become such a pariah so soon after an election.
All the losing Dem candidates I have seen in my life have still been honored after they lost. Humphrey, McGovern, Carter, Mondale, Dukakis (criticized for a bad campaign, but not his character or ideology), Gore (well not really a loser) and Kerry. All still venerated and respected by the Dems.
And as far as I remember the Rep.s were still respected after losing. From Goldwater to Dole and McCain.
But Romney has shown himself to be such a cold, plutocratic twit, that he has quickly brought both parties together in their disgust.
I guess he really was bipartisan.
