McCain Concedes

His supporters booed as John McCain conceded the election to Barack Obama.

"Sen. Obama has achieved a great thing for himself and his country," he said.

"The failure is mine, not yours," he told his supporters, many of whom booed.

His supporters cheered for Sarah Palin, who McCain called her "one of the best campaigners I have ever seen and an impressive new voice in our party."
