« Infinite Monkeys: The Democratic Dirigible | Main | It's Not Difficult At All »
Iowa's major newspapers published their endorsements today -- and they neatly managed to avoid picking a winner:
Iowa's largest newspaper endorsed North Carolina Sen. John Edwards for the Democratic presidential nomination while three other Iowa newspapers went for Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry in weekend editions.
Note the complete absence of names like Dean, Clark, Gephardt -- it seems that Iowa newspapers are determined to extend this primary race as much as possible. It's very surprising that none of the broadsheets saw fit to endorse Gephardt, a progressive Midwestern who has a strong record of supporting labor and a centrist national-security outlook. It's almost as if they deliberately chose lost causes to keep some hope alive for these stumbling campaigns. After all, four Democrats are polling in double digits, and Edwards isn't even one of them.
Remember -- the longer that there are more than two or three viable candidates in the primaries, the better Dean's chances of winning the nomination with the plurality of the radical left.Sphere It View blog reactions
