Around 2:15 a.m. Eastern, John Podesta made a quick stop at the Javits Center to announce to the die hard Clinton supporters remaining beneath that glass ceiling that the race was too close to call.

“Head home, get some sleep,” he directed, letting supporters and the press know that the campaign would have more to say in the morning. Any chance a concession speech might be among those things?

We faintly recall about a week or two of pundits fretting that Trump wouldn’t concede, thus threatening the very pillars of democracy and sending the nation into violent chaos.

Life comes at you fast sometimes.
