Fighting Another Day

Being a news-junkie, I stayed glued on CNN, watching the recent US Mid-Term Election unfold. I wanted to observe America's democracy in action. Everyone probably knows by now how it all turned out, the democrats were swept in power.

One thing I admired was how the former Senator from Virginia handled his predicament. With CNN projecting that his opponent Webb was ahead (they were careful not to call that race), Sen. Allen stood on the podium and basically rallied his troops but as Virginia officially concluded her count, a possible bitter recount was averted. Senator Allen, let it go.

No one wants to be labeled a sore looser.

Having been a witness to several elections in the Philippines, where no one wants to give up--- i wonder, when we can see such statesmanship in the Philippines?
