Alaska's largest newspaper endorses Obama?

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."

  • Harvard Law Professor Charles Fried - who has been one of the most prominent conservative thinkers in the country and served as Solicitor General of the United States under Reagan - announced that he's cast his vote for Obama in an absentee ballot.

    Fried also asked to be removed from several campaign-related committees on which he served and stated that his reason for voting Democrat was "the choice of Sarah Palin at a time of deep national crisis."

  • That doen't even make sense. Sarah Palin is a risk as second in command when Obama has NO executive experience and is wanting to be first in command?!!!! Come on people, THINK!! A "cool, steady hand" doesn't help if it doesn't know what it is doing!

  • I have to give this one a big whoop-dee-doo! The Anchorage Dailey News had to let most of their reporters go this last year. Thier best reporters are bloggers, and they're on the verge of going out of buisness. They're in major need of income re-distrabution, because they're not making any money of thier own, so it's no surprise they're endorcing Obama.

  • I think even the rich are starting to realize if you starve the middle man the rich will get hit also. Past eight years our deficit has sky rocketed, rich got all the breaks and the middle has been pushed into loans and credit cards to be able to live and feel we are going ahead instead of behind. Now the reality has hit, and we have stopped buying, now it is the rich turn to realize they pushed us to far.

  • What's the question? If you're asking whether they endorsed Obama, you already answered it by the article you put with the post, anonymous.
