Kerry Concedes Election?

>> Wednesday, November 03, 2004

More as I can get it, but it appears Kerry is taking the high road and conceding the election rather than drag the Democratic Party through the mud via lawsuits. This is unofficial, so keep your fingers crossed, but here's what I have:

From the AP, After a long, tense night of vote counting, the Democrat called Bush Wednesday to concede Ohio and the presidency, The Associated Press learned.

From South Africa (Kerry supporters) Bush win better for Iraq

Kerry 'concedes defeat'
"Congratulations, Mr President," Kerry said in the conversation described by sources as lasting less than five minutes. One of the sources was Republican, the other a Democrat.

UPDATE: I'll try to find the transcripts later, but Kerry gave a very dignified speech. Edwards did not.

Bush's acceptance speech was humourous. It looks like we don't have to move to Ireland -- like we would have had Kerry won.

Well, I must say that if Kerry is indeed conceding the presidency it will be the first time I have been impressed with him. May he go quietly away and take John Edwards with him.

I never thought in my wildest dreams that Kerry and Edwards would have actually bowed out without a knock down drag out lawyer fest.

Me neither. I am glad that it ended this way. He didn't want to be remembered like Al Gore. His speech was very gracious, and he tried to introduce the idea of unity. I know this country can work together; it has been done before. Now that we are not going to be bombarded by images projected by both sides daily, it may begin to happen.
