Amid the “hands down” most contentious presidential election, Richard Handler, the CEO of investment bank Jefferies and its parent company Leucadia National (LUK), circulated a letter offering some personal perspective.
At the end of the day, the “American Way” is bigger than any one candidate.
“As painful as this process has been, supporters of all sides must and will come together to rally around the eventual winner. No matter how wrong every voter might feel about the other side, the American Way will win out and the states of America will once again become the United States of America. This is fundamental to the U.S. democracy and, while not perfect, there is no better system,” Handler wrote.
Voting is a personal and private decision. It’s OK to disagree with the other side, but everyone is entitled to his or her own opinion.
