Long-term, the left in the US has been way, way more damaged by this than the right. Obama was the great Hope for creating a socialist welfare state in a country that has historically been hyper-capitalist. Further, Bush and Obama's huge bailouts and investments have, by most accounts, done very little to stabilize the economy while costing a fair amount, again casting aspersions on the notion of any centrally planned economy in the mind of the US voter. Obama has progressive ideas but lacks the spine and wherewithal to implement them and thus will be a 1 term President.
