Republicans: November 2008 Archives
We haven't addressed John McCain on Polichicks since the election, because we felt that Barack Obama should have his day after his historic win. But now we want to acknowledge Sen. John McCain, who fought a long and hard campaign for the presidency.
John McCain's concession speech was one of the most moving that we have ever heard. He commended Obama's accomplishments, acknowledged what Obama's historic victory means to African Americans, expressed sympathy to the Obama family on their loss of Obama's grandmother and encouraged the country to unite behind our new president.
No doubt that had to be a tough speech to make, especially the part where he preaches unity and calls Barack Obama "my president." (We mean, imagine if you had to publicly praise your work frenemy and call her "my boss," moments after she got the promotion you wanted.) But as hard as it must have been, John McCain stepped up to the plate and did what was best for our country.
Now that's "country first."
