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.'"'

Re: Boston Globe Endorses Obama

The Boston Globe is a good paper.  I assume it has some influence in New Hampshire, in my book it's the top paper in New England.  Do you know their endorsement history?

What kinda struck me as funny is that what you linked to is a news story "reporting" on their own paper's endorsement.  Hard-hitting journalism there, guys.

Their reach does enter southern NH, for sure. I doubt any newspaper endorsements have that much effect, but parts of NH are definitely suburbs of Boston.

Re: Boston Globe Endorses Obama

the crux of their argument: obama's four years as a child in indonesia qualifies him for the Presidency.

hire a new editorial board, please.
