Denver Post Endorses Obama

Oh no, they reference those community organizers Sarah Palin hates so much.

Republicans love to mock Obama's history as a community organizer. But here was a man with no money to offer, no patronage to dispense, no way to punish his opponents. All he could do was to work with people from all walks of life, liberals and conservatives, business people and the unemployed, and bring them together in common cause for a better community. Could there really be better preparation to reunite a worried and divided America to again pursue our 'more perfect union'?

If Americans were only worried about foreign affairs, McCain's stalwart service in the military and experience on the national stage would make him the more credible commander in chief. But our eyes have turned homeward and, in this hour, Obama has the eloquence and vision to bring us back together.

As novelist Christopher Buckley said in endorsing Obama, the Illinois senator 'has a first-rate intellect and a first-rate temperament.'

With the help and prayers of the American people, we believe those talents can also make Barack Obama a great president.

In 2004 the Denver Post endorsed Bush.
