I still don't believe in newspaper endorsements

I still don't believe in newspaper endorsements


As readers know, I've been on something of a jihad against newspaper endorsements of candidates this year. Ironically, perhaps, because here in Pennsylvania it turned out that I and some of my co-workers did benefit from a chance to question Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama directly, since they were both willing to come to 400 N. Broad Street to plead for the DN endorsement. I think we could have these good issue discussions without an endorsement hammer, but, as John Lennon said, you may say I'm a dreamer.

So, that's a preamble to say that I'm not going to hype the newspaper's endorsement -- but here it is.
