Ya, so whacky that he was spot on prescient about the effects of NAFTA and other free trade initiatives. Pretty much everything he said about trade turned out to be true.

I'm not 100%, but I'm pretty sure I voted for him in the primary, based on his sucking sound.

His campaign pretty much killed the third party option, too.

Back when this whole free trade mania was just kicking off there were many people warning that what did happen would happen. But since they were mostly labor voices and all the republicans and the newly empowered Third way democrats were all about crushing unions these voices were ignored.
But in hindsight, the labor voices were right and everything the free traders predicted was wrong. The widespread prosperity promised turned out to be profits for the 1% and gruel for everyone else.

But we sure built a hell of a lot of shareholder value, didn't we?

Yep, and that was the plan all along. Devalue labor and empower capital.
