Congrats to president-elect Obama. He fought a good fight, mostly clean, and was able to inspire many people. Now the hard part comes. Actually governing is much different than campaigning. Hopefully he will be up to the task.

And I would like to give McCain some credit. I was really impressed with his concession speech. If that McCain had ran for president, he might have won. We'll never know. I was disappointed in his supporters who booed their new president-elect. If only they could have been as gracious and humble as their candidate, perhaps the tone of the campaign could have been different.

I would like to add that the 2008 elections are not over yet. There are Senate seats still being contested. It appears that the Minnesota race will go to a mandatory recount, and there could be a run-off in Georgia. So we haven't see the end of it all yet.

There was a lot of anger in the room when McCain conceded. One could see it in their faces. Disappointment would have appropriate but anger? I've been voting 40 years and I don't recall seeing this before and I surely don't like it. Do they have such a sense of entitlement to the presidency or are they just plain mean-spirited creeps?
