From McCain's Concession Speech:

"In a contest as long and difficult as this campaign has been, his success alone commands my respect for his ability and perseverance.

This is an historic election, and I recognize the special significance it has for African-Americans and for the special pride that must be theirs tonight."

I liked the speech too. It was apropos. Even though I didn't go for him, I do appreciate what he had to go through as a POW and all his efforts afterwards. It was very tough for him to run, no doubt.

The race may have gotten a little nasty at times, but after it was called, both candidates had very respectful things to say about one another, and I find that commendable.

Here's to a new beginning.

Mccain's speech was good. A respectful concession.
