Kerry Concedes

CNN) -- Democratic Sen. John Kerry phoned President Bush on Wednesday to concede the presidential election, a White House aide said.

Word of Kerry's phone call came a few hours after White House Chief of Staff Andrew Card announced that the Bush campaign was convinced the president had won re-election.

"President Bush decided to give Sen. Kerry the respect of more time to reflect on the results of this election," Card told GOP supporters at the Reagan Federal Building and International Trade Center in Washington. "The president will be making a statement later today."

Well, Reagan and Bush are two of a kind.

Congrats to the Republicans.

Here's to another four years of ripping on Bush

And Kerry got more votes than Bush 1 -when he beat Dukais.

and more than Reagan ever got in one election.

and more than Gore -
when he beat Bush.

Bush also got more of the popular vote than Bill Clinton did in either of his elections.

I'm going to miss the campaign. It was fun while it lasted, through the ups and downs. I'm going to brag and say I was one of Kerry's first national supporters, and I never once even contemplated wavering, even when he was below Sharpton in the polls. Cheers to an exciting campaign

But Clinton won the most votes in his elections and the Electorial College easily.

also Clinton maintained consistantly high job approval ratings, despite personal failings.
