Will election night's loser be gracious or grudging?

Before the election results the Washington Monthly asked that question. At first, it seemed that Romney might be a gracious loser, but no - he is the grudging loser. Romney blames 'gifts' on election loss. A mark of a person is how he or she loses. 

According to Romney in a conference call with fundraisers and donors,  it was Obama's gifts to the young voters and minorities that cost him the election. What gifts? It was "health coverage, contraceptive coverage in health insurance, [and] forgiveness of interest on college loans."

Bobby Jindal says: 'Wrong!"  “No, I think that’s absolutely wrong."  He said " it's divisive to cite social policies that help young people and minorities."
"The Republicans need to go after every single vote and stop dividing American voters.  And, “we need to continue to show how our policies help every voter out there achieve the American dream, which is to be in the middle class, which is to be able to give their children an opportunity to be able to get a great education. …" [Jindal is the Republican governor of Louisiana.]
Already they are positioning for 2016.
