Nov. 3rd...

Per CNN article, Regret, no remorse in Kerry's call for unity,
...the junior Massachusetts senator made repeated references to unifying a divided nation that produced only a two percentage point difference in the popular vote for the two presidential candidates. It started when he disclosed the contents of his conversation with the president. "... I offered him and Laura our congratulations on their victory, " Kerry said. "We had a good conversation, and we talked about the danger of division in our country and the need -- the desperate need for unity, for finding the common ground, coming together. Today I hope that we can begin the healing."
Kerry could have contested the results... it must have been incredibly tempting. But he chose to graciously concede. Thank you, Senator John F. Kerry.

I agree. It was VERY gracious and classy of him - although I certainly didn't expect such behaviour from him.

Poor Elizabeth Edwards. Now, *that* is sad.
