4. There's some real humanity there.
Not to mention, the kind of political seasoning we haven't seen in a hundred years or more.

6. Correction:
"Not to mention, the kind of political seasoning we haven't seen in a hundred years or more" isn't quite accurate.

In American history, every candidate who won the popular vote but lost the electoral college came back to win the office of the presidency in the next election.

In 2004, Gore was faced with the choice of running to vindicate himself, and follow history, or to stand back and say: is this really the best time?

In fact, he knew that given the unprecedented control of the media combined with the "war-time president" effect that this wasn't the right time.

He had the wisdom, and the guts, and the further wisdom, to come out and say that if he ran, the election would be about the past and not the future.

He nailed it.

And now, I believe that his wisdom and his guts have put him in the position to do what every other man who has won the election and lost the office has done.

To give the people the chance to let him claim it.

5. Your candidate has most likely been chosen already.
So just sit back, relax, and let it takes its course. You will feel better not fighting the wave.

9. Going to try to go.
It is a long long drive, though. I think some friends are going to drive. Hope so.

8. That would be good to go to
A $100 isn't bad for a ticket either. Too bad I don't live in Florida. :(
