  •  Is this why Obama released the "off the record" (2+ / 0-)

    interview with them? Maybe he knew they were going to endorse Mittens, so he made sure his own words to them would be made public in advance of the endorsement. That whole thing was a weird situation.

    Anyway, this newspaper also endorsed Hillary Clinton over Barack Obama right before the 2008 Iowa primary.  So although this move is disappointing, I hope their opinion will be equally irrelevant this time.  

    And I think now it is good that they released the interview in full last week. Obama got to make his case directly, and if they waited until now to put it out there, it would appear defensive and reactive. Whatever their reasons for handling it this way I'm glad they released the transcript ahead of this move by the paper.
