Even Democrat Hillary Clinton, smarting from her surprise loss to Trump four years ago, rallied by telling a hotel crowd: “Donald Trump is going to be our president. We owe him an open mind and the chance to lead. Our constitutional democracy enshrines the peaceful transfer of power. We don’t just respect that. We cherish it.”

Perhaps Trump needs a writing prompt to help him with this speech. I would actually refer him to Clinton’s speech. “Joe Biden is going to be our president. We owe him an open mind and the chance to lead. Our constitutional democracy enshrines the peaceful transfer of power. We don’t just respect that. We cherish it.” And I’d also suggest that he paraphrase McCain’s concession, in this case referencing vice-president elect Kamala Harris. “This is an historic election… And I recognize the special significance it has for Black Americans and for the special pride that must be theirs tonight.”

With more lawsuits coming on Monday that’s a pipe dream. After all it was Trump who told Fox News anchor Chris Wallace in July, “I’m not a good loser. I don’t like to lose.” Mr. President: With history in the making, you have one last chance to redeem yourself. The whole world is watching.
