Hillary Clinton’s Concession Speech

For almost two years, people have been telling me that I am secretly — or not so secretly — pro-Hillary Clinton. I’ve often responded by asking people to point to a single passage I’ve ever written praising Hillary Clinton. No one has ever found anything. Well, the search is over: She did a great job just now. She was gracious in defeat, encouraged everyone to give her opponent their support and celebrated the glory of the peaceful transfer of power. She was honest about how much her defeat hurt but admirably without rancor or bitterness. It was as good a job anyone could expect from anyone who had just suffered a loss like this. Good for her and well done.
