Palin's Hometown Paper Endorses Obama

This says a lot. The largest newspaper in Alaska, the Anchorage Daily News, endorsed Barack Obama for president. The paper talks about all the reasons why McCain shouldn't be president and why Obama should. Then the editors take a well-deserved swipe at their governor:

Despite her formidable gifts, few who have worked closely with the governor would argue she is truly ready to assume command of the most important, powerful nation on earth. To step in and juggle the demands of an economic meltdown, two deadly wars and a deteriorating climate crisis would stretch the governor beyond her range. Like picking Sen. McCain for president, putting her one 72-year-old heartbeat from the leadership of the free world is just too risky at this time.
