November 4, 2008

That was the single greatest concession speech I’ve heard or read.

    I was thinking the same things while watching. I was amazed at how genuine he was. I actually believed him when he said he supports Obama. It was very genuine.

    It’s generational, and has to do with his age.

    Class.

    Where was this McCain during his run for the office? Not that it would have 100% changed my position, but I may have thought longer and harder about voting for him. Not that it would have mattered in the People’s Republic of Washington anyway.

    A friend here at school commented today that very same thought Neal. Where was that eloquence and genuineness (true, true Greg)? That phrasing that connected to the people, but was very high level? The class (as Fogey said above)?

    Last night was not the grouchy old man we’ve known the past 12 months. Last night was the classy, but fiery man from the previous 10 years in the Senate.

    If Obama was smart…he would find somewhere in his cabinet for McCain.

    That WAS the campaign! The concession speech was the outcome of a failed campaign.

    McCain has been conceding for months. It just sounded better after it was over.

    Yeah, I felt like McCain was too nice in the campaign until it was too late. He needed to go for Obama’s weak points earlier and harder.

    They left a lot of that to Palin which is fine but yeah.

    It was a nice speech.
