Think about how frequently political concession speeches are the first time political candidates present themselves at their most personal and, perhaps, most like their true selves. It makes you wonder why the demeanor and tone losing candidates display in political concession speeches hardly ever surface during elections.

Wouldn't it be fascinating to see the fate of a political candidate who displayed a conciliatory, bridge building, humble, and genuinely grateful tone during the heart of an election campaign?

Do you suppose that type of approach during an election campaign would connect with people? Or would such a candidate be ripped to shreds and left in the fields of Iowa?

We'll likely never know.

And that's truly a loss for the United States and its people. - Mike Brown
