While I don’t blame Kerry for not conceding until the last vote is counted (when things are this close), things look pretty grim, and it really doesn’t look like he is going to win. I simply can’t understand how people can vote for Bush, but I guess I am outnumbered. The turnout was high, but it doesn’t look like it was in the 120s like people were predicting… I am amazed that the Bush camp would claim victory when it is fairly close after the last election… But they amaze me all the time. :)
This is also an amazing repetition of the failure of Polls… Yesterday’s exit polls showed Kerry with an edge in several key states, but this morning it’s looking like that edge was nonexistent. And like I said, I don’t blame Kerry for holding off, I sure hope that he doesn’t go sore-loser style if it doesn’t go his way once Ohio is finished counting.
I am very disappointed, but what can you do? All we can do is hunker together for the next senatorial election, and in the next four years find a stronger candidate. That is all.
