Pittsburgh Paper Endorses Obama

Wednesday, 16 Apr 2008 10:07 AM


The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette has endorsed Sen. Barack Obama for President, noting that Obama was more the candidate for the future.

"Like two opposing armies marching to a new Gettysburg, the forces of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton come to this latest battlefield symbolizing two views of America -- one of the past, one of the future. Pennsylvania Democrats need to rise to the historic moment," the endorsement said.

"The litany of criticisms heaped on Sen. Obama by the Clinton camp, simultaneously doing the work of the Republicans, is as illustrative as anything of which one is which. These are the cynical responses of the old politics to the new. Sen. Obama has captured much of the nation's imagination for a reason. He offers real change, a vision of an America that can move past not only racial tensions but also the political partisanship that has so bedeviled it."

The Post-Gazette is a major publication in western Pennsylvania --- where Clinton is polling better than Obama and holding on to the support of blue-collar white voters.
