John McCain’s Concession Speech, 11-04-2008

I was deeply impressed by McCain’s concession to Barack Obama. He spoke words and ideas that I was not accustomed to hear spilling from his lips. I was nearly dumbstruck.

It was a speech shorn of every element that made the campaign speeches nasty misrepresentations that set the teeth in an angry clench. I realized during that speech of giving way to Obama that if McCain had campaigned with such talk above the baser motive, he might have come closer to his main goal. What dark nature overcast his blue sky of success and victory?

In concession, his eyes rose to that vision of a higher plain of political activity that he lost in his short view of extreme bias in the campaign, a pathway into the underground of character assassination and unthinkable, unimaginable lies, even up to the last few hours. (I must hold him accountable for those who made the ads about Rev. Wright in the last hours of election day.) He conceded to a new wave of unity that may now be washing over this land from coast to coast. And he became, in concession, a healing part of that. Thank you, Sen. McCain.

  9. I was amazed at the speach. So gracious and perfectly well said. I loved the fact that OBAMA also stated that something like “That man has given more for this country the most of you will ever know.” They were both amazing, now Lets Roll!
