The Voters have spoken...

Now that the elections are over, I find myself wondering how losing politicians do it. How do they explain to their children that they've lost.

Is it a bitter "Well, honey, the people have spoken and they just don't like Daddy." Or do they, in true political fashion, put a positive spin on things? "Looks like I can take you to scout camp after all, kid. The voters won't have your mommy to kick around anymore."
