McCainia: It's Over

By Amy Silverman and Sarah Fenske

Like John McCain, we're going to keep this one short and sweet.

Barack Obama is the next president of the United States, and while there are a lot of Republicans here at the Biltmore who aren't happy about that, many were as gracious as the Arizona senator.

We got onto the lawn here just in time to see McCain speak. The Senator was dignified in defeat, promising the new president he would be there to help. It was nothing nearly as electrifying as Obama's speech, but the crowd reacted with tears, cheers, and even a few boos (when McCain suggested we all welcome Obama/Biden).

As you can see from this photo, some Republicans took the loss hard.
