Memorable quotes from Election Night

"And to all those watching tonight from beyond our shores, from parliaments and palaces, to those who are huddled around radios in the forgotten corners of the world, our stories are singular, but our destiny is shared, and a new dawn of American leadership is at hand."

"I won't spend a moment of the future regretting what might have been. This campaign was, and will remain, the great honor of my life. My heart is filled with nothing but gratitude for the experience and to the American people for giving me a fair hearing ..."

-- Sen. John McCain, the Republican presidential nominee, in his concession speech from Arizona
