NY Post Endorses Obama

NYC's conservative tabloid, the NY Post, has endorsed Barack Obama for the Democratic primary. But much like the NY Times' endorsement of John McCain focused more on why they were not backing Giuliani, the Post endorsement is more an evisceration of the Clintons than an enthusiastic support for Barack Obama.
His opponent, and her husband, stand for déjà vu all over again - a return to the opportunistic, scandal-scarred, morally muddled years of the almost infinitely self-indulgent Clinton co-presidency.

Does America really want to go through all that once again? It will - if Sen. Clinton becomes president. That much has become painfully apparent.

Bill Clinton's thuggishly self-centered campaign antics conjure so many bad, sad memories that it's hard to know where to begin. Suffice it to say that his Peck's-Bad-Boy smirk - the Clinton trademark - wore thin a very long time ago.
The Post is owned by Rupert Murdoch's News Corp and is the 9th most widely-read paper in the country.
