Steve Schmidt (Character)
from Game Change (2012) (TV)
Steve Schmidt: [Palin has insisted on giving a concession speech on election night] You're not giving a speech because the Vice Presidential candidate has never given a concession speech on election night. It's not about you, it's about the country.
Sarah Palin: Yeah, well there's a lot of things never been done before.
Steve Schmidt: Governor, this country has just elected the first African American president in the history of its existence, and it is the concession speech that will legitimize his succession as Commander in Chief. It is a serious and solemn occasion, and John McCain, and only John McCain, will be giving this sacred speech. This is how it has been done in every Presidential election since the dawn of the Republic, and you, Sarah Palin, will not change the importance of this proud American tradition.
