    NBC News has confirmed the report. This one is over, the fat lady has sung, and the cows have come home.

    Classy move on JFK's part to not drag this out for weeks to come. And I would have said exactly the same thing had the results been opposite.

    Agreed. Senator Kerry shows a lot of class by conceding rather than by dragging this out.

    Yup - it's over.

    I'm keeping the "red and blue" map for future reference. At least now I know that all the most ignorant people in the world live in those states colored in red. :rolleyes:

    For more years of GWB: :barf:

    I don't know about ignorant, so much as evangelical Christians. Seems homophobia won the election. :nono2:

    Bush won the election. Give him his moment of glory and recognition. He has earned it.

    Let's put the animoisty aside---at least for a day.

    Moment of glory? He had four years from the last one. This is an internet forum where moments of glory exist rarely.

    Why? He's still the poster child for Idiotic World Leader of the past 25 years, and that will never change.

    I don't believe in being a hypocrite.

    The voting outcome doesn't change what and who he is. Not only won't I "unite" behind him, I'll continue to see him as the phoney, rigid, arrogant moron that he has demonstrated himself to be for four years. If he really cared about this country, he would have packed his bags and left. Time and political propoganda won't change what he is at this point. :D

    He's also the Man who won the election and helped Republicans pick up seats in the both Houses. He loves this country and ran as a Patriot. The American People knew Kerry was a phony.

    Looks like the "What can I do for my country" folks beat the "What can my country do for me" folks.

    That's how I felt about Clinton for 8 years. It's nice to see the "other side" suffer for a change. :D

    If Kerry had won by the same vote count the Terrorist and Michael Moore would have been screaming that America wants change.

    And that is just the attitude that is destroying this country from within. American life is now a "team sport", it is US against THEM in a death match, let's see the other side suffer. Let's see just how much we can destroy them completely so the country becomes a one-party, single-ideology nation. Can't have any dissenting opinions.

    And you honestly think that the country would NOT have been just as divided if Kerry had won?

    The way I see it is that under our 2 party system, this country has been in recent history and will always be divided, and that the division will always be very close to split right down the middle. Right around 50% of Americans will always be angry, hurt, sad, etc after major elections.

    After the dust settles, I think it comes down to personal choice whether to support the candidate that wins or not. This time around, some democrats will choose to rally behind Bush in the weeks to come, and some won't. Just like some republicans would have chosen to rally around Kerry had he won, while some wouldn't. It has very little to do with the candidate in this regard. It has to do with the individual making the choice.

    I didn't say that, and yes, I do think the country would still be just as divided had the election gone the other way.
    You are far more optimistic about than I. I don't think the problem we see now has much, if anything, to do with the two-party system. The division in America now goes much much deeper than simply Republican or Democrat. It is a fundamental ideological divide that carries far more weight and is far more pervasive. It radiates throughout our culture, even, making nearly everything a sort of game to be won or lost. It's a very ugly consequence, I think. And I'm not saying I haven't played a part in it as well, but so has nearly everyone else in this forum, to one degree or another.

    I see the division becoming deeper and uglier with time.
