Failure to accomplish a small feat needed to achieve a larger goal which you were expected to reach. Comes from former British Defense Secretary Michael Portillo's constituency loss to the Labour Party in 1997, Portillo had been expected to hold his seat and lead the Conservative Party in opposition, however his loss lead to an obscure career of making documentaries about trains.
A: Shit man, you see the election? He would've been Prime Minister if he hadn't lost his own seat.

B: Yeah, he really pulled a Portillo there.
