NYT endorses Obama

This happened in the last couple of hours. The Senator from Illinois becomes the first candidate for President in decades to complete the Grand Slam -- all four "papers of record" in America endorsing the same person.

Perhaps not too surprising on the Times' part, but the paper was especially concerned about McCain's regressing into neo-con mode after decades of claiming to be a maverick while also slamming his ill-advised pick of Sarah Palin as running mate (a increasingly common theme with both progressive and right-wing papers who are pulling for Obama or have refused to endorse either top of ticket candidate).

NYT endorsement editorial is here.
