26. No, he didn't have to "fire up his base." His base was fired up.

Don't mistake DU for the Democratic base, or even for being remotely representative of liberal Democrats. Per the polls, Liberal Dems have consistently supported Obama by 83-88% during his presidency; the "lost the base" myth is so much fodder for talking heads on TV. And DU disproportionately represents the "I want mine, screw everything else" Naderite-type wing of the party.
