It’s all over but the whining
My little sister said, “I hope Kerry’s not like Gore, complaining and complaining.” Apparently it was misplaced hope on my and her part to think that perhaps Kerry would take defeat graciously and like a man. In contrast, Marc Racicot (Chairman – RNC), speaking for Bush, said the president put it (victory speech) off temporarily as a courtesy to Kerry, “to allow the opportunity to look at the situation in the cold hard light of day.”
Captain’s Quarters does the best job of summarizing all the facts that Kerry must look at in the “cold hard light of day.” Little Green Footballs does a good job with an elegant little victory speech. Ann Althouse over at Instapundit gives an eloquent plea for Kerry to be gracious in losing.
ScappleFace tongue-in-cheek, “quotes” Edwards:
However, a spokesman for the Kerry-Edwards campaign said, “Presidential elections are not decided by popular vote. We need the electoral college to guard against the specter of a few dense population areas determining the direction of our entire nation.. Sen. Kerry has always been an enthusiastic supporter of the electoral college and this election just verifies the wisdom of that support.”
Democrat vice presidential candidate John Edwards said that he and Mr. Kerry attended several Electoral College football games this fall at Lambert Field.
