The Hits Keep Coming
The Washington Post, possessed lately of a generally conservative editorial board, endorses Barack Obama. In doing so, they join a steady and entirely one-sided (meaning the list is notably short on McCain endorsements) outpouring. The final paragraph says, "...Mr. Obama's temperament is unlike anything we've seen on the national stage in many years. He is deliberate but not indecisive; eloquent but a master of substance and detail; preternaturally confident but eager to hear opposing points of view. He has inspired millions of voters of diverse ages and races, no small thing in our often divided and cynical country. We think he is the right man for a perilous moment."
Given a chance, and a little open-mindedness on the part of skeptics, I predict -- assuming he's able to pull off a win -- he'll be something we haven't seen in quite a while, something good, and that the lies and scares will be soundly and resoundingly disproved. Minds will be changed. Wonder if these folks will be among them.
[Update: First ever Democrat to be endorsed, here. And another endorsement from a conservative talk-show host, here.]
