LA Times endorses Barack Obama for President

WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at

The Times hasn't made an presidential general election endorsement since 1972.

We need a leader who demonstrates thoughtful calm and grace under pressure, one not prone to volatile gesture or capricious pronouncement. We need a leader well-grounded in the intellectual and legal foundations of American freedom. Yet we ask that the same person also possess the spark and passion to inspire the best within us: creativity, generosity and a fierce defense of justice and liberty.

The Times without hesitation endorses Barack Obama for president. - LA Times
