Drinking game of the night: drink every time you hear the following, “Too close to call,” “Record Turnout,” or “Historic Election.”
Please drink, or at least vote, responsibly.
I pouted when McCain came up to the podium to give his concession speech, not because he lost, but because as he and Palin waved and gave their thumbs up to the crowd, I thought, “It sucks to lose. That has to be so hard.” It takes character to lose with grace, even when it’s expected and part of the job. It’s hard to feel rejection, or loss, or even failure, even if it was out of your hands, even if it had to do with factors beyond your own control. And then to let it go, to wake up the next day, and to simply go on… that’s what really makes any of us a success. And for the record, I voted for Obama.
