No one can deny that this election has been a whopper of an eye opener for Democrats - er, former Democrats I mean.

By 10:30 the next morning he was convinced that he had lost; he then sent a gracious telegram of concession to Truman.

...Sound familiar?

Yeah, except for one thing:

Surely you don't expect Øbama to act like a gentleman and concede graciously, do you?

One other little minor point: there were no riots when Truman pulled out his surprise win.

Well, all except the gracious concession part, we haven’t seen that from democrats in a while.

forward to 2008: By 10:30 the next morning, Obama was convinced he had lost; he then sent an army of lawyers to ohio, pennsylvania, florida, north carolina and new york to sue on the grounds of voter intimidation, fraud and a variety of other charges. He promised to hold this election in litigation and limbo until the desired result was declared and he took the oath of office.

“I never did give them hell.
I just told the truth, and they thought it was hell.”
Harry S. Truman

Instead of labeling the congress as the “Do Nothing Congress”, McCain should repeatedly say that if it is controlled by the Democrats, it will be the “Take Everything You’ve Got” Congress.

Hang tough, McCain and fight to the finish!

I can't imagine Obama being gracious in case he is defeated.

Gore to Bush: "There's no need to get snippy about it,"

Obama to McCain: "My lawyers will destroy you and my blue shirts, I mean, community organizers will have their marching orders"

One part of the analogy that does not fit: "gracious" OBama?! Consider, much more likely, what happened in Kenya. BO will not be satisfied to leave the election scene without blood & guts strewn across the American landscape. He has a track record upon which I base that comment.

Harry S. Truman=my favorite president! The smile on his face is priceless. I think we might see a similiar smile coming from McCain. Fight on John!
