Nice to see a gracious John Kerry concede the election this morning. It appears that John Edwards was one driving force behind pushing the issue to the bitter end. But more rational thinking on the part of John Kerry prevailed.
Kerry's actions serve America and his constituents very well, because it's clear that any attempts to challenge the results in Ohio would have been futile given Bush's large lead. In addition, the wide popular victory by Bush combined by the Republican gains in Congress illustrate the nation's preference for conservative leadership.
Kerry, unlike Gore, has lived to fight another day. Hopefully his gracious concession will serve as a catalyst for improved cross-party cooperation in Washington DC.
