Kerry Concedes; Protests Begin

Democratic contender John Kerry has decided to concede the election to George Bush, despite widespread problems with voting in Ohio. Groups around the country were already planning to take the streets on November 3 to protest the election of a pro-war president. From Alexander Cockburn: It's as grim a day for the Democrats as was 1980 when the Republicans swept the board. What will the Democrats do? You can already hear the Democratic Leadership Council cranking up its message that you can only beat the Republicans by outflanking them on the right. The Nader alibi has gone. The Democratic Party and its leaders have nowhere else to look than in the mirror. They would do well to examine Nader's critiques, but we bet they won't.
