We had an election.

Excellent points! Half of a president's first term is spent on getting re-elected. If the opposition party is large enough in congress and the senate there is gridlock. If one's candidate didn't win the presidency they usually support gridlock.
It's not just the President spending time getting re-elected; it's most high-level politicians. I'd like to see a breakdown of the time spent meeting with constituents, discussing/acting upon proposals, and fundraising/campaigning for re-election.
