supporters, joined by Vice President
Gore and their families and cheered by
thousands of jubilant supporters.
The president declared that the results
proved that the "vital American center is
alive and well" and claimed that the
results of the election "affirmed our
course" politically. "Americans have told
every one of us - Democrats,
Republicans and independents - loud
and clear, it is time to put politics aside,
join together and get the job done for
America's future;" Clinton said.
Dole, appearing surprisingly upbeat
and refreshed despite a 96-hour
marathon that concluded his campaign,
conceded about 11:30 p.m. last night
before a cheering throng of supporters
at a Washington hotel. His appearance
came about an hour after placing a tele-
phone call of congratulations to the
president in Little Rock.
"I have said repeatedly in this cam-

wish him well and I pledge my support

When Dole conceded, staffers were
visibly upset by the news.
"I guess I'm just disappointed," said
Dole/Kemp staffer Susan Schafer. "I
don't think the better man got elected."
Michigan Gov. John Engler said it
was easy to articulate what went wrong
with the Dole/Kemp campaign.
