Bush receives a phone call from Democratic nominee John Kerry, in which the Senator conceded defeat in the 2004 presidential election, November 3, 2004.

Photos of dead civilians from the 9/11 attacks cannot be shown out of respect for the families.
Photos of dead soldiers CAN be shown because it is detrimental to the war effort.
Reuters would not DARE show the map....
LOL! I'm glad I went to read the caption - you had me going.
Without the caption my response could only be - WTF??!!
Why it is EASILY one of the best photos of 2004, of course.
Didn't John Kerry FLIP FLOP on the significance of that phone call when he supported the recount in Ohio recently?
We all "know" that Karl Rove manufactured that video and leaked it to Al-Jazeera...
The Magnificent Five.
and more from that wonderful day
A promo photo from "The Passion of the Christ" should qualify for a spot among the pictures of the year.
Pics 1,2,3, &5 didn't show.
That day was one of the happiest days of the year for me. By contrast the previous days right up to election night were the most painful. I totally shut off the media, except for Fox now and then. Peace of mind only came for me when I logged on to FR, I'll never forget that.
Note to self: don't forget to donate to FR next time.
days = day
I personally think Kerry in the bunny suit should be there.
