The McCain-Obama Call

McCain called Obama at 11 p.m. Eastern. What they said, courtesy of Obama spokesman Robert Gibbs:

Senator Obama thanked Senator McCain for his graciousness and said he had waged a tough race. Senator Obama told Senator McCain he was consistently someone who has showed class and honor during this campaign as he has during his entire life in public service.

Senator Obama said he was eager to sit down and talk about how the two of them can work together--Obama said to move this country forward "I need your help, you're a leader on so many important issues."
