More endorsements for Obama

Shorter both: McCain is the politics of the old who has covered himself in the slime of Rovian smear tactics. Obama is the face and voice of the politics of the future and offers the only hope to restore America to its former glory.

The Toledo Blade:
America needs a new direction, not just because the current administration's economic policies - not to mention its war-bound foreign policies - have contributed to our current problems, but because we have lost our way in terms of the proper relationship between government and the people and, more importantly, the responsibility we owe each other. Americans who view the future with optimism do not - even in the face of terrorism - give up the basic freedoms our revolutionary forefathers died to secure.

Sen. John McCain, by nature, has shown himself to be incapable of providing the American people with an optimistic vision of the future. Firmly rooted in the failed politics and policies of the past, he cannot guide us on a path he does not see.

Senator Obama already has demonstrated that he is a man of the future in the way he has inspired a new generation of voters to become involved in the political process and to actively strive for a better tomorrow.
The Pittburgh Post-Gazette:
This closing blizzard of slime is another attempt to spread the wizard's curtain further: Don't look at how the economy has impoverished you while a Republican has been in the White House, look at Mr. Obama's passing acquaintance with an old radical who did bad deeds almost 40 years ago, because that is more important.

Yes, they apparently do think the American people are that stupid.

On Nov. 4, we believe Americans will heed the better angels of their nature and recognize that the election of the eloquent Barack Obama -- whose story is a quintessentially American one of impossible odds overcome -- will best answer the pressing call of history.
The choice has never been more clear in my lifetime.

I thought the 1972 Nixon V. Muskie choice was pretty clear too, but of course it was a contest of gentlemen compared to the cesspool this campaign is.

Of course we survived Nixon, but I think the situation is worse today. I equate a McCain/Palin administration with doom.

Good point Fogg, in fact all of the elections offered clear choices to me, although many times I held my nose to vote but this one is most clear mainly because I think you're right. McCain would doom us and destroy life as we know it altogether.
