There were a lot of people who thought that it was unlikely that we would be sitting here on Wednesday, knowing exactly who would be President of the United States for the next 4 years.
I'm going to do something that I didn't think I would do.
I'm going to applaud John Kerry.
Kerry did something I NEVER would have expected him to do and that was to concede Ohio without all the provisional ballots counted. It certainly seemed that way conisdering John Edwards spoke earlier ("we will fight for every vote"). What that makes me believe is that the Kerry camp did not want to risk more embarrassment because it is possible that the gap could have widened even more. I'm just speculating, though.
The economy is going to continue to improve (see the stock market reaction to Bush's win) and, hopefully we'll see Bush's promise to reform the tax code.
I'm relieved. I was nervous as to what might happen with Kerry as President. At least now, we know what to expect...
