The New Yorker Endorses Obama

My favorite magazine, the New Yorker, has endorsed Barack Obama in its most recent issue. Here is a link to the entire editorial (or you can click on the title above):

However, I will share with you their concluding paragraph:

[The election of Obama] could not help but say something encouraging, even exhilarating, about the country, about its dedication to tolerance and inclusiveness, about its fidelity, after all, to the values it proclaims in its textbooks. At a moment of economic calamity, international perplexity, political failure, and battered morale, America needs both uplift and realism, both change and steadiness. It needs a leader temperamentally, intellectually, and emotionally attuned to the complexities of our troubled globe. That leader’s name is Barack Obama.
