Riding into the sunset: Big shot Palin and lone cowboy, McCain

It's a week of departures, and the following is one of the more poignant and symbolic.

On November 5th, Senator John McCain and his running-mate, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, left Phoenix after losing the Presidential race.


Palin left the Arizona Biltmore hotel Wednesday afternoon in a motorcade stretching more than a dozen vehicles, flanked by a dozen more cops on motorcycles. She was joined by some 18 family members and friends who had made the trip from Alaska to Phoenix to watch Election Night returns.

In contrast, John McCain drove himself in his own gold Toyota Sequoia SUV -- with friend and Senate colleague Lindsey Graham riding shotgun -- from his condo in Phoenix to his secluded compound in Sedona for a few days of rest there
