Daily News Endorses Obama, Too

Following LA Times' historic endorsement of Presidential Candidate Barack Obama, the Valley-based Daily News today printed their endorsement of the Illinois Senator: "In this campaign, the Republicans have been on the side of despair, stirring up fear. They hope Americans will be terrified of taking a chance on a young, eloquent, intelligent, optimistic senator from Illinois who has the gall to think the country's best days are ahead - with him at the helm, of course. If you vote for the Democrat, they whisper, the terrorists will come and get us. (He's probably a terrorist himself.) If you vote for the Democrat, he will come and take your money to give to illegal immigrants. (He's really a socialist who wants the government to run everything.) If you vote for the Democrat, it will end America as we know it."
