Last Gasp

Ann Althouse eloquently calls for Kerry to concede soon, and with as much grace as he can manage.

For whatever it’s worth, I think that’ll happen before too much longer, once Kerry and his inner circle have a chance to get some rest and come down from their campaign adrenaline. I’d have rather seen it last night, but given the press of emotions, expectations, and uncertainty, I can’t blame them too much for hanging on for a few hours.

But just a few. If Kerry hasn’t admitted defeat by tonight, he’ll land squarely in the sore-loser category for the rest of his life–and he’ll take Edwards there with him. That as much as anything tells me that we’re closer to the finish than the MSM is willing to admit this morning.
