McCain addressed his supporters in his concession speech, saying he had called Obama to congratulate him. At the mention of Obama’s name, boos and hisses erupted from the crowd. At least twice in 30 seconds, he had to put his hands up to the crowd to basically shut them up. Meanwhile, at Obama’s speech, he said the same thing, and was met with a ripple of polite applause from the crowd. He went on to praise McCain’s efforts, and still the crowd did nothing but applaud.
Obama, your supporters, the record number of people who turned out to vote for you, they’re a class act. Just don’t let them — and the rest of us in the world — down, because we so want to love America again.
