Anyone here think George B. McClellan was a paranoid-bipolar? One minute he honestly believes the country is going to make him dictator, the next minute he thinks he is about to be sacked.

They loved him because he never used them to their fullest. They would always get light marching orders under him, and were hardly ever pressed on anything.

They did, but when push came to shove in the 1864 election, few of the troops he had personally commanded voted for him.
