Sunshine31-I think John McCain's concession speech was also gracious. It was admirable how he immediately told the public to rally with Obama that he had become our next president.
John McCain's concession speech was sad for him because of his age.
It was going to be the last time he would run for the president. Hillary concession speech was very difficult for her to make because she was thought to have been the front runner and almost the shoe in for the Democratic nomination.
Her speech displayed a neutral tone and did not appear as gracious as some other concession speeches. This was a difficult loss for her to take and it showed when he offered her concession speech.
But at least she can run again. John Mc Cain’s speech really noted that he would not run again which made it sad for him.
