McCain’s classy concession speech

Justin Horwath

If you haven’t already, check out John McCain’s concession speech. “The failure is mine,” he proclaimed after telling a mostly white crowd the significance of Obama’s election. It was sad to see McCain, a voluntary prisoner of the Vietnam war, return to himself just too late. Had he displayed the class and honesty in the speech throughout his campaign, perhaps the turnout would have been more in his favor, if not outrightly so. The only disheartening aspect of the speech: Sarah Palin standing at his side.
