9. Concessions do not determine the winner.

If Al Gore had conceded on that election night in 2000, and the votes came in that put him over the top in FL, he would have been the certified winner in spite of the concession, and would have been inaugurated the next Jan.

Concessions mean nothing. Is there even anything in the law about them? I think not. You win by the votes not by your opponent(s) conceding.
