It's confirmed; he's called Bush to concede. It was the right thing to do; there was no way he was going to win Ohio and to drag this out for 11 days would have done too much damage to the Democratic party, especially after what happened in 2000.

I feel really, really sad right now. A bit frightened too.

I know we disagree on this but I just don't think he has any idea what he's doing, and our children and grandchildren are going to pay for that. Literally.

What we both share (all of us here in fact, I presume) is the desire to see Al Qaeda wiped out, their leaders either killed or captured, the roots of international terror examined and addressed, and our world become a safer and more peaceful place.

We all want to get to the same place; what we disagree on is how to get there.

Good!

Then it will be over!

What makes me happiest is that (I hope) Rudy Giuliani won't be all over TV! Sure, he did a great job following 9/11. But I just don't like adulterers, even when they are Republicans rather than Democrats.

MSNBC now says 2 PM Eastern

Many of our Presidents, both Republican and Democrat, have been adulterers. Some committed adultery while in office and others didn't. Reagan, for example, cheated on his first wife with Nancy. Other Presidents who cheated include JFK, Clinton, Eisenhower, FDR and Thomas Jefferson.

And let's not even get started on the House and Senate, LOL.

Don't leave out George Washington!

But more recently, Clinton was taken over the coals for it, but nobody seemed to care when Rudy brought his mistress into the Mansion while his wife was there.

At least Clinton didn't get on TV later and talk about "values" like Rudy has ad nauseum.

I remember well when Ron and Nancy made that movie together. Of course, Jane was a VERY big star at the time. One of the reasons I never trusted him. However, I applaud their long life together.

I must have missed those Rudy speeches where he moralized. I don't like adulterers either, but Rudy never struck me as a hypocrite about such matters. You didn't get the photo-ops of him clutching extra-large sized bibles heading into church with his wife the Sunday after his last bj in the Oval Office!

Maybe because he's probably never gotten a bj in the Oval Office?

He's probably gotten one or two at Gracie Mansion though. Wink

FWIW I don't see a dichotomy between being a sinner and going to church. In fact I'd say that if Clinton was sinnin' and considered himself a religious man, then church was exactly where he should have been those Sunday mornings. Sometimes the hurtful nature of what you're doing doesn't sink in right away. Who knows, maybe those church services were helpful. I think he gets it now; at least he sounds like he does.

Hi, Evie,

I reckon because I am home alone 24/7 I was able to watch all of the political stuff. Rudy was on often doing interviews, and appeared with the President at some rallies, which I watched.

To be fair, he never said moral values, but spoke of "values". To wit, choose the candidate who had values.

I recall seeing photos of his distraught wife.

I just think he could have stuck to what a great job the President did after 9/11.
