With 9 days left until Election Day, Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama got a boost to his Georgia campaign today when he picked up the endorsements of the Macon Telegraph and the Columbus Ledger-Enquirer.

From health care to tax policy to dealing with the reprobates of the world, Sen. Obama's ideas are superior to those of Sen. McCain, whose judgment has been rightly called into question.  In the words of former Secretary of State Colin Powell, Obama has "style and substance."  He is a living example that there is a new day dawning in the world, and he will make the case that, as usual, America will lead the way. We endorse Sen. Barack Obama.

In their endorsement of Obama, the Columbus Ledger-Enquirer notes that four years ago, they backed George W. Bush for re-election


We believe Barack Obama is the right man to change our nation’s direction.

We believe he has the intelligence and vision to lead us through these troubled times.

For these reasons the Ledger-Enquirer endorses Barack Obama for the presidency of the United States of America.

Barack Obama has also been endorsed by the Atlanta Journal Constitution.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
