Chicago Tribune Endorses Barack Obama

First time in the newspaper's history that a Democrat has been endorsed:

However this election turns out, it will dramatically advance America's slow progress toward equality and inclusion. It took Abraham Lincoln's extraordinary courage in the Civil War to get us here. It took an epic battle to secure women the right to vote. It took the perseverance of the civil rights movement. Now we have an election in which we will choose the first African-American president . . . or the first female vice president. [...] On Nov. 4 we're going to elect a president to lead us through a perilous time and restore in us a common sense of national purpose.

The strongest candidate to do that is Sen. Barack Obama. The Tribune is proud to endorse him today for president of the United States.

First time for a Dem? Good for them.

This is the most crucial election in our modern history.

I understand people who think Republican ideology will be better for America (whatever that means nowadays. Fiscal responsibility? passive foreign policy?), but I can't accept a Republican endorsing and supporting McCain. He's not the worst Republican, but by his surrender to his campaign managers, he has proven himself weak and unworthy for the job. Good for them for leaving that sinking ship.
