All Philadelphia Major Newspapers for Obama

All Philadelphia Major Papers for Obama

New York Times report: By Katherine Q Seelye … Senator Barack Obama’s debate performance last night may have been panned, but he was endorsed today by the Philadelphia Daily News. That makes it a sweep for Mr. Obama among Pennsylvania’s major newspapers.

“Most candidates claim that they will change the way business is done in Washington,” the paper writes. “Barack Obama has made us believe that, yes, he can.”

The Philadelphia Inquirer endorsed him back in February, before neighboring New Jersey voted on Super Tuesday. On Wednesday, he was endorsed by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and the Patriot-News in Harrisburg.

But perhaps the most significant catch for Mr. Obama was the nod from the Times Tribune, which is based in Scranton — the largely white, working-class, Catholic town where Mrs. Clinton’s family has deep roots and which she has adopted as her hometown in this campaign.

With the exception of The Inquirer’s, the endorsements came after Mr. Obama made his comments about small-town voters being bitter because of their economic condition, making them cling to their guns and religion.

  2. You will always take heat when you do what is right as opposed to what is expedient. SF’s far left will now revile you for daring to oppose their agenda, even though you were very up front about your support to allow students choice. I guess &#81&0;choice2#8222; is only good if it is limited. Thanks for standing up for HS students and their parents who want the program.
