The New Yorker Endorses.

To no one’s surprise, they endorse Obama, and they make a damn good argument in doing so.

What most distinguishes the candidates, however, is character—and here, contrary to conventional wisdom, Obama is clearly the stronger of the two. Not long ago, Rick Davis, McCain’s campaign manager, said, “This election is not about issues. This election is about a composite view of what people take away from these candidates.” The view that this election is about personalities leaves out policy, complexity, and accountability. Even so, there’s some truth in what Davis said––but it hardly points to the conclusion that he intended.

Seriously, go read the whole thing.

    Funny, I was just saying the same thing vis-a-vis the despicable McCain behavior this weekend.
