Thanks to Bitten and Bound for the video posting, since I couldn't grab it directly from MSNBC for some reason. This has got to be the most generous, and truly loving, concession speech I've ever heard, and is an eloquent demonstration of why I voted for Sen. McCain. Fortunately, he returns to the Senate, so we'll still have his leadership. Now we all have to work hard to keep government accountable and work for a unified country.
