35. Welcome to DU, and thanks for your post!
I do have a nuanced disagreement with you. I fully think we should investigate allegations of vote fraud and irregularities and I believe we should fight for a recount in order to get all the votes counted. We need to ensure that all Americans are able to express their right to vote. And there's nothing wrong in double-checking the results (RE: recounting).

But I agree we need to look forward, not backwards. We were right to concede b/c it allows us to look forward. If a victory were possible, then refusal to concede would've made sense, but it isn't possible and we need to pick our battles and think broadly and long-term.
