From Nixon to Hillary, we’ve had a long cast of recurring characters in the hit American Drama series: The Presidential Election. Here, you’ll find interesting interpretations of the traditional concession speech, making the act of losing more of an art than just simply custom. In the contexts of almost all of these speeches, volatile and polarized social and political climates result in elections full of mischief and inconsistency, the discontents of which must be addressed while simultaneously conveying a formal concession to Democracy’s decision.

(Audio) George H. W. Bush's 1992 Presidential Concession Speech The 1992 election is the first in United States history to observe a latent gender gap in the presidential vote. Amidst accusations of having dodged the draft, smoked marijuana, and had an affair with Gennifer Flowers, George Clinton was still able to pull the win out from under George H. W. Bush, whose strength in foreign policy was less useful to Post-Cold-War America. A notable third party candidate, Ross Perot, is often the most remembered aspect of this wacky election. The billionaire businessman amassed 19% of the national vote by asking for $5.00 donations on Larry King Live, and through a series of infomercials.

(Audio) Gerald Ford's 1976 Presidential Concession Speech Gerald Ford's 1976 election loss to Jimmy Carter was compounded with a case of laryngitis, and to the injury was added the insult of being the only election win by a Democrat between 1968 and 1992. Ford, who'd taken over as interim president after Watergate, inherited terrible campaign conditions such as the loss in Vietnam and a struggling economy, but his "Rose Garden" approach (pitching himself as a man with a specific set of duties he is the only one capable of completing), was a stiffer, more rigid approach to Carter's moderate policies and his outsidership in Washington.

(Audio) George McGovern's 1972 Presidential Concession Speech The 1972 election was the first after the ratification of the 26th Amendment, which lowered the voting age from 21 to 18. Senator McGovern, therefore, running a liberal campaign with such promises of the times as an end to the Vietnam War, should have had a good chance of winning. But Nixon would take this election by a landslide popular vote of 60.7%, a number inestimably challengeable when Watergate was exposed less than two years later. McGovern, though the campaign is over, the election lost, still fits in a few quotes by Abraham Lincoln and W.B. Yeats, which should be evidence enough that the election was tampered with.

(Audio) Jimmy Carter's 1980 Presidential Concession Speech Jimmy Carter was one president who was able to burrow his way into the hearts of many Americans. But unfortunately for him, the political climate of 1980 was in the midst of change. Facing flack from both parties over handling of foreign policy matters such as the Iran Hostage Crisis, Carter was pitched as precisely what Raeganism claimed to cure. Inflation and high unemployment rates also contributed to Carter's waning popularity. The loss marks the political realignment of the Republican party into what would be deemed the Raegan Era, highlighted by new battles waged in the war on drugs, supply-side economics, and increased defense spending.

Albert Einstein – Address For United Jewish Appeal – With Asst. Sec. of State Joseph C. Grew – April 11, 1943 – Gordon Skene Sound Collection –

In the current climate of division, insanity and violence, there's always been that quest for what Richard Nixon once referred to as listening to our "better angels" in an effort to inject some reasonable voice, or an attempt to make some sense out of our precarious and sometimes questionable human condition. In 1943, as reports were beginning to filter in of the situation in Germany and the German occupied countries towards Jewish populations, The United Jewish Appeal began an effort to create an awareness of what would later be described to the world as The Holocaust. In 1943 there were rumors and reports from refugees who had managed to escape. America was, for the most part, slow in reacting – and it was efforts of United Jewish Appeal and many other organizations at the time to help bring the situation to light.

On April 11, 1943, United Jewish Appeal organized a fundraiser and a broadcast appeal featuring several noteworthy personalities including this short address by Professor Albert Einstein, himself a Jew and a refugee who had managed to escape Hitler's Germany:
Albert Einstein: Our age is proud of the progress it has made in man's intellectual development. The search and striving for truth and knowledge is one of the highest of man's qualities – though often the pride is most loudly voiced by those who strive the least. And certainly we should take care not to make the intellect our god; it has, of course, powerful muscles, but no personality, It cannot lead, it can only serve; and it is not fastidious in its choice of a leader. This characteristic is reflected in the qualities of its priests , the intellectuals, The intellect has a sharp eye for methods and tools, but is blind to ends and values. So it is no wonder that this fatal blindness is handed on from old to you and today involves a whole generation.

Our Jewish forbears, the prophets and the old Chinese sages understood and proclaimed that the most important facet in giving shape to our human existence is the setting up and establishment of a goal; the goal being a community of free and happy human beings who by constant inward endeavor strive to liberate themselves from the inheritance of anti-social and destructive instincts. in this effort the intellect can be the most powerful aid. The fruits of intellectual effort, together with the striving itself, in cooperation with the creative activity of the artist. lend content and meaning to life.
But today the rude passions of man reign in our world, more unrestrained than ever before. our Jewish people, a small minority everywhere, with no means of defending themselves by force, are exposed to the cruelest suffering, even to complete annihilation, to a far greater degree than any other people in the world. The hatred raging against us is ground in the fact that we have upheld the ideal of harmonious partnership and given it expression in word and deed among the best of our people".
The program begins with an address by Under Secretary of State Joseph C. Grew – here is that address from April 11, 1943
