It’s unusual for the Boston Globe to come out with its political endorsements this early in the presidential primary. But today’s Sunday Globe (12-16-07) contains the paper’s official blessing for Barack Obama as the nominee for the Democrat Party & John McCain as the nominee for the Republican Party.
Read the McCain endorsement:
Read the Obama endorsement:
Obviously the Globe will endorse the Democrat nominee over the Republican one once the primaries are officially over & the general election race takes off in earnest. You can tell from the aforementioned editorials which candidate (& said candidate’s narrative) excites the Globe’s editorial board.
The paper’s endorsement of McCain is no surprise either but a question thus arises: Will the Globe’s embrace of McCain help him or hurt him in the eyes of Republican & Unenrolled voters who will cast their votes during the Massachusetts GOP presidential primary? Any thoughts on this question?
