The New York Daily News endorsed Hillary Clinton in the state's Democratic presidential primary next Tuesday — calling her "a super-prepared warrior realist" who can best address the nation's economic woes over "fantasist" Bernie Sanders, who is "at passionate war with reality."

"The central challenge confronting the next president is clear," the Daily News said in a lengthy editorial posted online late Tuesday. "She or he must ignite and rebalance the United States economy in favor of the many while also extending an extra helping hand to ease burdens that have grown too heavy for some.

"By choosing Clinton, Empire State Dems would powerfully signal that the party has gotten real about achieving long-sought goals," the newspaper said.

"Clinton is unsparingly clear-eyed about what’s wrong with America while holding firm to what’s right with America," the editorial continued. "She fully understands the toll that adverse economic forces have taken on the country.

"She is supremely knowledgeable about the powers a President can wield to lift fortunes in need of lifting. She possesses the strength and the shrewdness to confront the tough politics of advancing an ambitious Democratic agenda in the White House."

The Daily News also described Clinton as a "cauldron-tested globalist who had the spine to give Obama a thumb's up for taking out Osama Bin Laden and who is far the wiser about the use of American power, having served as secretary of state and seen the consequences of the war in Iraq.

"These truths about America’s most well-known public figure are long past debating among Democrats, above all in New York, the state Clinton represented in the U.S. Senate."

The editorial slammed Sanders' record — "subjected to meaningful scrutiny for the first time" — and said that "the senator from Vermont proved utterly unprepared for the Oval Office while confirming that the central thrusts of his campaign are politically impossible."

The board called key points of the Democratic challenger's platform "Sanderisms" that "would likely wreak epic economic damage."

The editorial said that Sanders' programs would raise taxes by as much as $4,700 a year on middle-income wage earners.

"He assumes that wage earners would happily shell out big bucks year after year because, trust him, healthcare would be free," the board said.

In an interview with the board, Sanders seed "at sea" on many issues, including foreign affairs.

"Actually, I haven’t thought about it a whole lot," the editorial quoted him as saying when asked "where a President Sanders would imprison or interrogate a captured [Islamic State] terrorist."

"Finally, Sanders’ ideological purity has found a boundary in political convenience," the Daily News continued. "He roundly and repeatedly denounces corporate America for destroying the fabric of America, yet, representing a Second Amendment-friendly state, he voted to grant the gun industry near total immunity from lawsuits."
