POP I completely agree with you. It's easier to be gracious to the other team when you've won. I was there tonight at the Chicago rally and trust me there was plenty of booing when McCain or Palin were talked about just not during Obama's speech. I think that McCain's speech was wonderful and he also had me in tears. I don't want him for my president, but I respect his service to this country and I respect his work as a public servant. I find no need to make fun of him or his supporters.

Racist people are sad but the *so called* undercover ones, that we can always recognize with NO problem, are even sadder. Look at what year it is and to think that their are still grown ass men walking around in white bed sheets with holes in them, yelling out most of us care. They are laughed at in so many ways.

Check out Barack...he cannot leave the stage, he is feeling this warm moment. He's looks so overwhelmed that he can't give a genuine smile anymore. Yay!!

And moving on... That was a great speech. I liked what he said about trying to earn the support of people who didn't vote for him. I also hope he stays towards the center. The Dems would be wise not to revel in their wins and try to pass a lot of super liberal policies.

Shepard Smith speaking on the news, just his voice as Barack walks around the stage, is really something. He is making this moment more heart felt with his warm words.

Too many posts between the original comments and now but... The Obama supporters clapped when he mentioned McCain because they WON. McCain's supporters are disappointed. They're not pieces of shit that should emigrate to other countries. Let's not take this opportunity to bash repubs, McCain or Palin. What is the point of doing so? There is something so much bigger happening. It's against the entire spirit of the campaign to behave ungraciously.
