The Washington Post has endorsed Barack Obama.
Sorry guys. I'm a rookie here. Just wanted to get the news out. Fair use? I had no idea. Opening paragraph and link below.
Thanks for the rec and understanding the brevity of the post.
Sorry for the short diary but wanted to get this out. WaPo endorses Obama!
Barack Obama for President
Friday, October 17, 2008; A24
THE NOMINATING process this year produced two unusually talented and qualified presidential candidates. There are few public figures we have respected more over the years than Sen. John McCain. Yet it is without ambivalence that we endorse Sen. Barack Obama for president.
Ah, and my favorite line...
OF COURSE, Mr. Obama offers a great deal more than being not a Republican.
But, really, that's enough for me.
And on to Snidely Whiplash...
But the stress of a campaign can reveal some essential truths, and the picture of Mr. McCain that emerged this year is far from reassuring. To pass his party's tax-cut litmus test, he jettisoned his commitment to balanced budgets. He hasn't come up with a coherent agenda, and at times he has seemed rash and impulsive. And we find no way to square his professed passion for America's national security with his choice of a running mate who, no matter what her other strengths, is not prepared to be commander in chief.
Then why this line?
We think that he, too, might make a pretty good president.
Well, this is his WaPo parting gift. I forgive them.
