    Assuming that Romney and his supporters really believed that they had the election in the bag, perhaps he held back in the 2nd the 3rd debates because he wanted to be in position to reach across the aisle to Democrats after he became president. In other words, perhaps he was already starting a strategy for bipartisan rapprochement.

    In fact, I think that Obama did more less exactly that in the 1st debate. He was far ahead and may have wanted to hold back in order to increase his chances of convincing some Republicans to work with him after the election. It must have scared the piss out of him when he realized what he'd done.

    Romney, on the other hand, safe and warm in his bubble, never heard the wake-up call.
