The Boston Globe has endorsed Barack Obama and John McCain.
Of course, Boston ain't Iowa.
"Of Obama, the editorial board wrote that his diverse and international life experience was a plus. "The most sobering challenges that face this country -- terrorism, climate change, disease pandemics -- are global,'' the board wrote. "America needs a president with an intuitive sense of the wider world, with all its perils and opportunities. Barack Obama has this understanding at his core.''
"The board, noting that Obama would be the country's first post-Baby Boom president if elected, addressed his relative lack of Washington experience compared to several of his Democratic rivals. ''It is true that all the other Democratic contenders have more conventional resumes, and have spent more time in Washington,'' the board wrote. "But that exposure has tended to give them a sense of government's constraints. Obama is more open to its possibilities.'"'
