The Volokh Conspiracy
Mostly law professors | Sometimes contrarian | Often libertarian | Always independent
This is a very classy statement by President Obama. (See the video in this link.) Lord knows he wasn't my first choice for president, nor did I find most of his policies and especially his overly broad assertion of executive power to my liking. Nevertheless, he maintained a dignity in the office of the presidency that his successor is highly unlikely to emulate. For that matter, leading Democrats in general have behaved quite well after Donald Trump's upset, especially in comparison with the expected claims of fraud and vote-rigging if Trump had lost.
