McCain's dignity in defeat lost on supporters

The grace and sincerity of John McCain's concession speech - particularly on overcoming the history of bigotry in America, reaching back to Booker T Washington - was marred only by the lack of decency of too much of his audience.

However disappointed, if they couldn't even applaud the sentiment of the historic achievement of electing the first black President, it seems that they just can't accept the legitimacy of their opponents.

McCain has not run the campaign he should have done, but he was the best chance the Republicans had.

This ugly scene confirmed again that the problem was not the candidate, but his party

It's no surprise his audience was full of bigots
