Exceptional Concession Speech by McCain
Senator McCain was moving, sincere and struck exactly the right tone of unity. It occurred to me as I watched his supporters boo at all the times when he meant for them to applaud -- this is a man who is better than his base. That may have been his problem all along -- he lost ground when he departed from his "maverick" principles and did what he thought the base wanted. That plus an incumbent Republican president with a 19% approval rating.
