John McCain - an honorable man

I watched the election results last night and in the early evening (Hawaii time) John McCain made his concession speech in Arizona.  I was surprised at his humble and kind words for Barack Obama and his call to his supporters to support our president-elect.

Here are some quotes from his speech last night:

"I urge all Americans who supported me to join me in not just congratulating him, but offering our next president our good will and earnest effort to find ways to come together, to find the necessary compromises, to bridge our differences, and help restore our prosperity, defend our security in a dangerous world, and leave our children and grandchildren a stronger, better country than we inherited.

Whatever our differences, we are fellow Americans. And please believe me when I say no association has ever meant more to me than that."

If you're wondering who I voted for, it was Barack Obama.  I had been considing John McCain and then I called my dad, a long-time resident of Alaska.  I asked my dad what he thought about Sarah Palin and his answer was not supportive.  He described her rise in Alaska and her inexperience.  He also spoke about some remarks she's made since she had become the vice-presidential candidate that Alaskans knew were false and misleading.  Finally, he noted John McCain's age and expressed concern that, if McCain were to become ill or incapitated, a woefully underqualified person (Palin) would be at the helm.

Even the Anchorage (Alaska) Daily News endorsed Obama for president in an article printed October 25, 2008.

I salute John McCain, his hard work and patriotism.  I also feel that the U.S. has picked the best team to run our country for the next four nears.

Either way, no matter whose in office, it has to pass through Congress anything that is up for vote.
