Well, I'm 0 for 2, sort of. I predicted a year ago that John McCain would be the first candidate on the discard pile. Then, last week, I said The Journal Gazette would most likely endorse Barack Obama. But I didn't exactly lose that one:
Voters need a candidate who can engage in a tough and fair debate with John McCain and someone who can assure voters that, yes, the U.S. is a great country and will act like one, in foreign affairs, domestic policy and day-to-day political life. Hoosier Democrats are fortunate in knowing that whichever candidate they choose Tuesday will represent the party well and would serve ably as president.
Have I missed something, or did the JG wuss out on endorsing a candidate in the biggest race on the ballot? Hillary or Barack? Both good! Don't ask us to choose! We might anger our black readers or our female ones! Now, that's progressive.
Yep, here's the Monday paper with the recap of JG endorsements, with the presidential race notably absent. I wonder if a decision was made not to endorse or if they just couldn't agree on a candidate. Give us the scoop, Tracy. This race made history -- people will be talking about it for years -- and you sat it out.
