Kerry concedes

This is remarkable. I thought Kerry would be influenced by redoubts, telling him to pursue hopeless litigation. This is to be very much respected, and he just might be in a position to actualize his desires to 'do something about the division in America'.

Maybe, if he doesn't pull a bitter-Gore, this will be doable.

In the same way I think there are other motivations in France and Germany to partially explain the failure of diplomacy in Iraq, I don't think the divisions have everything to do with Bush, or even his lacking communication skills. The left side needs to go towards the center, and the administration needs to take more reasonable actions (more balanced budgets, no marriage amendment) and also needs to be more willing to admit errors, and correct them publicly.

I think Kerry could continue to be a strong voice in politics if he cordially rides the wave of half the country that wanted him (or not-Bush) for president.

The man got pretty chocked up, particularly when he said, '..from the bottom of my heart.'
