FULL Boston Globe Obama Endorsement

"In our view, the choice on the Democratic side is between Obama and Hillary Clinton. Clinton has run a diligent, serious campaign, and her command of the issues is deep and reassuring. But her approach is needlessly defensive, a backward glance at the bruising political battles of the 1990s. Obama's candidacy looks forward."

Great catch for Obama.

Wish it went for Clinton , but it just shows we have a fight on our hands.

May the best person win.

Needless to say I like Obama as well and if he wins I won't loose much sleep.

Re: FULL Boston Globe Obama Endorsement

I think this will be the last DMR endorsement ever, I just read the comments over there it seems like every Obama and Edwards fan is so livid they are canceling their subscription. Hillay is thta polarizing and alot of people think by the NY times article that they wer "starstruck" and whined and dined to death.

Re: FULL Boston Globe Obama Endorsement

Hey maybe the supporters of Obama is where the problem lies .

Just a thought ?

The sooner some of his supporters start understanding that he is a living being that breathes the same air as other politicians the better for them.

I don't see Hillary Clinton supporters cancelling subscriptions to the boston globe or ripping it to shreds.

Maybe some of them should you know grow up a bit.

So if he loses the nomination with all the glowing press would some of his supporters jump off a bridge.

Re: FULL Boston Globe Obama Endorsement

Haha, talk about shooting the messenger.  Desmoinesdem already talked about how Republicans consider DMR a "liberal" paper, so now they can be hated by both the left and the right!  Lucky them.

Beautiful endorsement

The contrast between this endorsement and DMR's endorsement for Clinton is telling. DMR is
comparatively soft and obviously conflicted -- look at how much time they spend talking about Obama.

Re: Beautiful endorsement

I know, honestly I don't think newspapers should do this anymore, it's too much pwer in the hands of two few, fairly or unfairly the woman of this board at the DMR are being accused of all sorts of things stemming from that NY times article. I know if I lived in Iowa, I would cancel my subscription out of anger.

Re: Beautiful endorsement

At the very least, I'd like to see industry reforms that would lead to these endorsements being treated
more like Supreme Court decisions -- with, say, a 2/3 vote required for an endorsement; full disclosure
of the sequence of numerical splits that led to an endorsement; and publication of both majority and
dissenting opinions.
