    Alaska's largest newspaper endorses Obama

    Sun Oct 26, 7:53 pm ET

    ANCHORAGE, Alaska – The Anchorage Daily News, Alaska's largest newspaper, endorsed Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama Sunday after declaring Gov. Sarah Palin "too risky" to be one step away from the Oval Office.
    "Like picking (Republican presidential candidate John) McCain for president, putting her one 72-year-old heartbeat from the leadership of the free world is just too risky at this time," The Daily News said.
    The newspaper said Obama "brings far more promise to the office. In a time of grave economic crisis, he displays thoughtful analysis, enlists wise counsel and operates with a cool, steady hand."
    The Daily News said since the economic crisis has emerged, McCain has "stumbled and fumbled badly" in dealing with it.
    "Of the two candidates, Sen. Obama better understands the mortgage meltdown's root causes and has the judgment and intelligence to shape a solution, as well as the leadership to rally the country behind it," the paper said.
    The Daily News said Palin has shown the country why she is a success as governor. But the paper said few would argue that Palin is truly ready to step into the job of being president despite her passion, charisma and strong work ethic.
    "Gov. Palin's nomination clearly alters the landscape for Alaskans as we survey this race for the presidency — but it does not overwhelm all other judgment. The election, after all is said and done, is not about Sarah Palin, and our sober view is that her running mate, Sen. John McCain, is the wrong choice for president at this critical time for our nation," the paper said.

    I wasn't aware of any newspaper other than the WSJ that wasn't for Obama...not too sure about the WSJ.

    I really don't care what newspapers, politicians or movie stars support which candidate.

    Can't believe everything you read, watching TV ads both nationally and locally, back to back slamming of politicians by each other, and the egotistical hollywood type who think the general public are influenced by their liberal ways.

    The Daily News said Palin has shown the country why she is a success as governor. Maybe Alaska doesn't want to lose Palin as governor?

    But the paper said few would argue that Palin is truly ready to step into the job of being president?despite her passion, charisma and strong work ethic.

    Last I heard she was running for vice presidency, see what I mean about the newspapers?

    I understand the political office of presidency and vice president is for the next 4 years.

    She might be ready in 4 years to take on the role of presidency.
    Why make that political statement today?

    It's funny that you should mention this. A while back the Teamsters local sent out their newsletter, and in it they endorsed Obama. Part of the argument was that we should "keep Palin where she belongs, in our state", or something to that effect.

    That's redundant...sort of like "evil child-molester"
    For D - that's an attempt at humor.

    Did you see the interview of BO done in 2001. All he can talk about is redistribution of wealth. If you got and your neighbor don,t, guess what the "Big O" wants to do with your money.

    they actually show clips of Obama saying these things. Perhaps you should bury your head in the sand or watch MSNBC which is the same thing.

    I'm fairly certain that the referenced interview was talking about civil rights issues, and how African Americans were not given any financial remedies for the wrongs done for generations, and the opportunities denied them.

    Out of context attacks work much better when there is no solid plan the oppostion can call their own.

    The phrase for this would be 'ad hominem attack'. When the message resonates, kill the messenger.

    encouraging the redistribution of wealth based on either economic standing or the color of ones skin still equates to socialism. No Ad hominem here.

    Actually, no, but if you don't believe the words coming out of his mouth you must be heavy into those cartoons.

    I'm expected to believe him when he says he will change things in washington why wouldn't I also believe him when he says the change he will make is wealth redistribution?
