I think it's very possible. My own depressive feelings tend to come and go at will, and I definitely have my good days and parts of days and my bad days and parts of days. The one advantage to being this variable is that when I do get pretty depressed, I generally know it's not going to last forever.
I was on a mood stabilizer once, to no particular effect. My mood swings aren't dramatic - I'm either ok or worse - no giddy highs, but it is pretty bizarre the way I can suddenly start obsessing about suicide in the middle of an otherwise ok day.
