…the Democratic party: there’s no grownup, no headmaster, to place the call to the Kerry folks and say, “it’s over” and protect the party’s long term reputation. A proper adult response to a (probable) 3 million popular vote discrepancy is, “it’s over, John. You did good; you fought well; don’t embarrass us.” Who’s going to do that? Terry McAulliffe? Bill Clinton? Hillary Clinton?
Imagine that call.
