The LA Times Endorses Barack Obama

THIS ONE really caught my eye. First, the LA Times hasn't endorsed a presidential candidate in decades. It's their stated policy. But secondly, the LA Times has become quite conservative in recent years and in their primary coverage, hit job after hit job on Barack Obama appeared in its pages.

But Barack has brought them to the point of breaking their own rules.

The Times without hesitation endorses Barack Obama for president


But the concluding paragraph says it all:

We may one day look back on this presidential campaign in wonder. We may marvel that Obama's critics called him an elitist, as if an Ivy League education were a source of embarrassment, and belittled his eloquence, as if a gift with words were suddenly a defect. In fact, Obama is educated and eloquent, sober and exciting, steady and mature. He represents the nation as it is, and as it aspires to be.

It don't get no better than that.
