I'm sure plenty of people have lots to say about how it was and wasn't won, but I personally have something slightly different to say.
Thank you, Senator McCain. Nothing becomes your campaign like the way you left it. No fussing around with recounts or court cases. You bowed out graciously when the results became clear, and you told all your supporters - even cutting across the boos - to stand by Obama, because he is going to be the next President. History will remember you for many things, but the one thing that I will remember you for is you being a gracious loser.
Hopefully, people across the nation will listen to what you said. Barack Obama is the next President of the United States, and we all need to get behind him, regardless of how you feel about his politics. As the saying goes, we aren't out of the woods yet - there's still economic and military troubles all over the world that need to be dealt with. The nation has chosen what it believes is the best Executive for handling that, so it's time to toss aside party differences and get to work on making this a stable and productive nation again.
That is all.
