I sort of randomly caught a local guy here in Texas (Paul Sadler, ran for the U.S Senate) making his concession speech. He talked about how any candidate elected by people who vote should be celebrated and supported. That even if your guy loses, the guy who did win, won by a process that deserves to be celebrated. I don't know, it was just really impactful and made me think about things in a different way. I do not know anything about Sadler, but it was the single classiest concession speech I ever have heard. (I didn't watch Romney's speech, though I heard he did an excellent job, as did McCain four years ago.)
The work is not done people. I am hopeful that we have the tools in place to get it a little closer.
