What you're saying, though, is that Google is making an inference. DuckDuckGo does not want to infer anything and I tend to agree. Also, why aren't all of the inserted links highlighted with the, "you recently search for" line? Why wouldn't Romney be a magic keyword? I appreciate your explanation but it doesn't really explain anything.

I don't work for Google or have any inside informatgion, but I guess "magic keywords" become such after a certain (very large) threshold. Obama, being the president of the United States for four years, has probably crossed that threshold long ago, but it only became a political issue since the election process began.
