  • Because, there will always be those who cannot win with grace. Not everyone learned good sportsmenship growing up... some of them had parents that tought them that second place is just the first looser.

  • He wasn't being booed... they were booing when he said Obama's name so they were booing Obama... and he had them stop.

  • They weren't booing McCain, they were booing when he talked about Obama. Yay McCain for asking them to stop. I just wish he would have done that earlier in his campaign.

    Speaking of McCain's speech...it was awesome! That was the McCain that I had been waiting to hear from for the last few months!

  • I didn't get to see McCain's speech.. our local news is just covering views of the crowd surrounding Obama's empty podium.

  • He seen the nature of his supporters. It was very disheartening to watch him say something very positive of a man on numerous occasions he professed great admiration of and get booed. His facial expressions showed how upset he was with their behavior.

  • He was going to cry...my god...he wants America united just as much as Obama and hearing booing like that was very disrespectful to his message of unity.
