The problem with a "Hope and Change" campaign is the winners expect the losers to change. The people who didn't want change are supposed to change.
We see the result with President Obama and the tea parties. And in New Jersey, with Governor Chris Christie and the teacher's unions.
Christie got elected in part because government is too big in New Jersey. He's trying to change an area, and running into trouble.
It's good that in a two-party system, you can both complain about change not happening and government trying to change you when you're happy.
