Globe endorses McCain, Obama (, December 15, 2007)
Senators Barack Obama and John McCain have been endorsed by The Boston Globe editorial board ahead of the first-in-the-nation presidential primary on Jan. 8 in New Hampshire.

The board wrote that Obama, the Illinois Democrat, fulfills America's need for "a president with an intuitive sense of the wider world,'' and that McCain, the Arizona Republican, ''has done more than his share to transcend partisanship and promote an honest discussion of the problems facing the United States.''

Captain Marvel: How about the endorsement from the Manchester Union Leader (is that the correct NH newspaper?)? Is that a liberal rag too?
