Obama winning in endorsements contest

E&P is keeping a running total of newspaper endorsements. I like this one from Utah myself.
The Salt Lake paper complained that "out of nowhere, and without proper vetting, the impetuous McCain picked Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as his running mate. She quickly proved grievously underequipped to step into the presidency should McCain, at 72 and with a history of health problems, die in office. More than any single factor, McCain's bad judgment in choosing the inarticulate, insular and ethically challenged Palin disqualifies him for the presidency.

"Still, we have compelling reasons for endorsing Obama on his merits alone. Under the most intense scrutiny and attacks from both parties, Obama has shown the temperament, judgment, intellect and political acumen that are essential in a president that would lead the United States out of the crises created by President Bush, a complicit Congress and our own apathy."
All over the country, from the Chicago Tribune who have never endorsed a Democrat to Denver, solidly Republican editorial boards who were expected to sit out the race at best, are instead strongly supporting Obama. I continue to worry about another stolen election, but with the ever growing number of converts to Obama's side, I think it's going to be very difficult to pull off.
