It what might be the least surprising election endorsement since The Enquirer backed every area Republican Congressional incumbent last Sunday, CityBeat today officially endorsed Sen. Barack Obama for president. Despite lacking any suspense, believe me when I say the decision to recommend Obama was undertaken seriously and is offered enthusiastically.
I'm honored to be have written the endorsement editorial on behalf of the paper, just as I will be proud and honored to cast my vote for Obama on Nov. 4 (if not before).
As you've likely heard by now, former Secretary of State (and longtime Republican) Colin Powell announced on Meet the Press yesterday that he would be voting for Barack Obama for president. Powell made a strong and persuasive argument as to why Obama could be an “exceptional” president, praising his “intellectual vigor” as well the inclusive nature of his campaign and overall vision for America.
Anyone who watched Barack Obama's 30-minute TV advertorial last night want to comment on it? Seems like it got pretty big ratings. Seems like Obama was everywhere. Seems like he came across as a virtuoso.
