Last Thought On The Clinton Speech

...and I do mean "last thought," because, by dwelling on it, I feel somehow complicitious in stealing the spotlight from Barack Obama on what should be his night.

If Clinton couldn't bring herself to concede--or to be as magnanimous toward Barack Obama as he is now being to her--she could have simply taken a cue from John Edwards, who gave this fine oration after the South Carolina contest.
