The Washington Post Endorses Barack Obama

The Washington Post tonight endorses Barack Obama in an editorial entitled, “Barack Obama for president.”  It endorsement is enthusiastic and minces no words, “It is without ambivalence that we endorse Sen. Barack Obama for president.”  It says that two basic reasons found its endorsement:

  • Mr. McCain’s “disappointing campaign,” including, “above all his irresponsible selection of a running mate who is not ready to be president”; but even more importantly
  • Because of our admiration for Mr. Obama and the impressive qualities he has shown during this long race.

    The Post compliments his intelligence, his subtle grasp of the issues, and his potential to influence positively foreign policy.  In a long and effusive editorial, The Washington Post concludes:

    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.

    I concur.  Barack Obama for president.
