They were both funny, took a few shots at each other but mostly self effacing remarks and goofin' on campaign rhetoric.GOOD

Last night at the Al Smith Memorial Dinner, McCain graciously described his opponent:

"I don't want it getting out of this room, but my opponent is an impressive fellow in many ways. Political opponents can have a little trouble seeing the best in each other. But I've had a few glimpses of this man at his best and I admire his great skill, energy and determination. It's not for nothing, but he's inspired many folks in his own party and beyond. Senator Obama talks about making history and he's made quite a bit of it already. There was a time when the mere invitation of an African-American citizen to dine at the White House was taken as an outrage and an insult. Today is a world away from the cruelty and prideful bigotry of that time - and good riddance. I can't wish my opponent luck, but I do wish him well."
That will work just fine as a decent and honorable concession speech.
