    Big news for Obama. This might help McCain among moderates, but it likely hurts him among the conservative base.

    McCain: http://www.latimes.com/news/opinion/la-ed-gop3feb02,0,3919492.story

    In the language of metaphor, Clinton is an essay, solid and reasoned; Obama is a poem, lyric and filled with possibility. Clinton would be a valuable and competent executive, but Obama matches her in substance and adds something that the nation has been missing far too long -- a sense of aspiration.

    I owe someone at the LAT a beer for that closing.

    Well said.

    This will help both of them immensely. McCain may not be as conservative as some would like, but given the competition, I don't think the conservative base will be voting for the other side...
  6. It is still stupid for newspapers to endorse a candidate in each primary.

    I don't think newspaper endorsements make a whit of difference in a presidential primary or in a presidential election. All it does is reinforce the stereotypes people have about a candidate or your paper.
    Newspaper endorsements can make a difference in local elections and ballot initiatives. But I don't think you're going to get any facts or opinion about a candidate you couldn't find just by watching debates and speeches or reading articles about them
