Journal-Sentinel editors go off deep end -- endorse Obama because he's more exciting

I kid you not. The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel finds both Hillary Rodman Clinton and Barack Obama, the latter having only three years experience in the United States Senate, equally qualified to be the next president but gives its endorsement to Obama because he's more exciting and offers a greater chance for change? Read it for yourself.

What on earth is this? People magazine? The Oprah show? In a time of war and a massive downturn in the economy is that the best the newspaper can come up with? I'll bet Jessica McBride will have a field day with that.

On the Republican side, the endorsement of John McCain is much more plausible and well-reasoned, although Charlie Sykes says McCain is more conservative that the newspaper's editors give him credit for.
