We did not win because Republicans failed to acknowledge this reality and move forward fearlessly. If that doesn’t change, we will not just be committing political malpractice. It will be political suicide.

The wisdom of the Framers in establishing the Electoral College, and not in having us choosing our chief magistrate by raw popular vote, is seen once again.
Even though, at this hour, we do not know whether or not Mr. Obama has won a majority of the popular vote across this nation, there is no doubt but that he has won a landslide in the Electoral College. His victory is decisive and his claim on office is legitimate. In a world that is uncertain, dangerous, and rude, Americans should be grateful for this.
I was very grateful for Mr. Romney's...
