It’s official.  George Allen has decided to concede.  The Democrats will have a majority in both the Senate and the House.  David Miller posted his article at CQ politics, “Allen’s Concession Guarantees Senate Majority for Democrats” at 3:17 p.m.

The Washington Post lauded Harold Ford, Jr.’s concession speech (which I mentioned yesterday) in an editorial today,“‘A Better Way’: Negative campaigning hit new lows this year.”

What people want more than anything, and what I heard and I know candidates all around the country heard . . . [was] a hunger, and they sensed a great appetite on the part of the American people for something much better and far more dignified and greater than what we’d given them.
