    He was suppose to give this at noon eastern, then changed it to 1pm eastern. He's still flip flopping.
    Sorry, had to say it one more time before he fades into obscurity.

    In all honesty, I expect him to be fairly gracious in his concession. He may not want to be, but I think all of his advisors will be cautioning him to do so.

    you're way too generous. The oddsmakers here in Vegas would NOT give you such easy odds. I would say they would probably say 1:5. In other words, if you bet he will, you will have bet $5 to win $1. Hell, I bet they won't even take your bet as it is a "gimmy".

    The disparity between the initial exit polls favoring Kerry and his subsequent loss to W tells me one thing: Most people voted for Kerry.......before they voted against him.

    Rush just said "If Kerry's really a good guy, he should give Bush his secret plans for the war in Iraq and on the US Economy"

    Is it just me, or is this the most pomp and circumstance surrounding a consession speech there's ever been. Camara's following the motorcade, police escorts, long waits just to see him stick his head out the door. Geez, just come out and say 'It's over. I lost.'
