And The LA Times Endorses…

Barack Obama for President!

We need a leader who demonstrates thoughtful calm and grace under pressure, one not prone to volatile gesture and capricious pronouncement. We need a leader well-grounded in the intellectual and legal foundations of American freedom. Yet we ask that the same person also possess the spark and passion to inspire the best within us: creativity, generosity and a fierve defense of justice and liberty.

The Times without hesitation endorses Barack Obama for President.

Just something to cheer up your Friday afternoon. ;-)

    The conservative Chicago Tribune endorses Obama! The first democrat in their history.

    From the AP: The Chicago Tribune is endorsing Barack Obama for president, marking the first time the newspaper has supported a Democrat. In an editorial posted on its Web site, the Tribune says the country needs a president who can lead it through a “perilous time” and restore “a common sense of national purpose.” It says Obama’s the best candidate to do that.

    Conservative Talkshow Host Michael Smerconish of Philadelphie endorses Obama!

    From ABCnes.com Smerconish is quoted: “John McCain is an honorable man who has served his country well. But he will not get my vote. For the first time since registering as a Republican 28 years ago, I’m voting for a Democrat for president.”

    Andrew,

    When this election cycle first started, you supported Obama, then split to support Hillary.

    Now your back on the Obama bandwagon.

    Explain.

    Thomas — on a strictly policy issue, there is little difference between Hillary and Obama. Its not that bikg a mystery that Democrats would move towards Obama once he secured the nomination.

    Thomas, are you saying McCain was always your first choice during the Republican primary? I kind of doubt it…
