You and I are in complete agreement.
I voted Perot in '96, not because I thought he had a chance, but because I appreciated his message and wanted to broaden the participation of alternate parties in the political process. McCain in 2000 until he was bested by Shrub, then a third-party candidate in the general election because I couldn't stomach either Gore or Shrub. 2004 was Kerry, because Shrub had proven himself not only incapable but a real and present danger, and in reaction to the disgraceful Rove-ing of Kerry's honorable service. 2008 was Obama, hoping that he was enough of an outsider to keep some of his promises about restoring some of the rights that Shrub had decided I no longer needed. What a disappointment that was. 2012 was third party again, because I knew who Obama was, but Romney was way too squishy to figure out who he was.
Whew, I thought I was the only one on this site that went that way in 08'
