McCain Concedes

It's official:

(CNN) – John McCain admitted defeat in the race for the White House Tuesday, saying: "The American people have spoken, and they have spoken clearly."

McCain said he had called Barack Obama to offer his congratulations shortly after 11 p.m., when polls closing on the West coast gave Obama the electoral votes to become the nation's first black president.

"Sen. Obama has achieved a great thing for himself and his country," he said, calling Obama a "good man."

I just watched his speech and I have to say that I thought it was fairly classy and understatedly magnanimous, despite the ugliness and resentment of the crowd. I guess he does still possess some shreds of honor and dignity; I'm glad he proved me wrong.

[Update: Jesus, not to be snarky or anything but Cindy just looks like a total Stepford zombie, doesn't she?]

Say what you will, but we've come a long way from Barbara Bush.
