A few quick quotes:
"Senator Kerry waged a spirited campaign, and he and his supporters can be proud of their efforts."
"America has spoken, and I'm humbled by the trust and the confidence of my fellow citizens."
"I will do my best to fulfill my duty as your president."
"I'm proud to lead such an amazing country, and I'm proud to lead it forward."
"Our servicemen and women will come home with the honor they have earned."
"I want to speak to every person who voted for my opponent. To make this nation stronger and better, I need your support. And I will work to earn it."
"When we come together and work together, there is no limit to the greatness of America."
"Whatever the road that lies ahead, that road will take me home."
"America goes forward with confidence and faith... and I am eager for the work ahead."
About the best speech I've heard Bush give. Cheney's was less impressive. In fact, it reminded me a bit of a winner's version of Edwards's lousy speech an hour ago. But that shouldn't detract from Bush's fine moment, just as Edwards could take anything away from Kerry's grace.
