Nothing like a gracious loser. West perseveres when there is nothing to gain except to obstruct and muddy the waters. That is his main attribute one which he must have picked up in military training. There is something he missed in that training called the strategic retreat. This is when you are overwhelmed, you pack up your bags and go somewhere else to nurse your wounds and plan the next campaign. He must have been asleep when his superiors were explaining how to do this.
Now most of us admire someone who is steadfast and refuses to quit easily. However, we admire even more someone with good judgment who knows when the jig is up. Congressman West has had his day and it is unlikely he’ll get re-elected to anything soon. His current unreasonable refusal to accept his loss graciously can be seen as his swan song on the political stage.
