Concession / Victory Speeches

I just watched John McCain's concession speech, and I have to say I like him better now than at any other time during the campaign. His speech was gracious and I appreciated the way he pledged his support for our new president and urged his supporters to do the same. Our country is in the midst of a difficult time right now and we do need to find ways to work together to solve some big problems. Kudos to McCain.

Though I was exhausted and ready to crawl into bed, I had to stay up to watch Obama's victory speech. For the first time in many years, I am proud of my country's choice of a leader. Barack may not be perfect, but I believe he is the best choice for our country at this moment in history. Obama's speech left me feeling inspired. Yes, we have lots of problems to solve. This is our time to make a difference. "Yes we can."

You are the second person I've read say that about McCain's speech.

Of course, his supporters weren't especially gracious. All the booing was uncool.
