I Love A Gracious Concession Speech

Or "How Real Men Handle Losing" - Part IV in a continuing series (I, II, III).

Rep. Ed Case (D-HI), after losing his primary to Sen. Akaka (D-HI) last night:

"I have to tell you that this loss is my responsibility. The decisions were mine to run and the responsibility and the result is mine," he said.

He vowed to support Akaka and the rest of Hawaii's congressional delegation as he finishes his term in the House.

"He won. I lost. That's democracy and we need to get on with it," Case said.

Akaka said that Case's challenge united the party.

"This has brought our party together, not just our party, this brought Hawaii together," Akaka said.

I'm looking forward to the series on how real women handle losing.
