The Anchorage Daily News, the largest newspaper in the state of Alaska - the governor of which is Sarah Palin - has endorsed Barack Obama for president.
The ADN lays out its case carefully, noting the failures of John McCain -- his erratic behavior, his lack of grasp of the issues, his Rovian campaign tactics. The ADN notes McCain's inability to comprehend the nature of the economic crisis and his frantic flailing about in a futile attempt to lend his "expertise" to its rehabilitation. Furthermore, while Alaska is "proud" to have its governor in the national limelight, she is clearly not ready to lead the nation; in other words, McCain's first "presidential" decision was a bummer!
On the other hand, Barack Obama has shown a clear head and a steady hand and gives all indications that he not only understands what the important issues are but will be better able to deal with them. For instance, two years ago Obama discussed the need to better regulate the financial markets. His advice was not taken. But he will bring a calm and cool intelligence to the table as our leaders attempt to turn things around and ensure this kind of financial disaster does not happen again.
