Newspaper endorses McCain, Clinton

December 16, 2007


— The Des Moines Register's editorial board is endorsing Republican Sen. John McCain and Democratic Sen. Hillary Clinton ahead of the state's Jan. 3 presidential caucuses, contending they top the field in competence and readiness to lead in a time of dissension at home and distrust and peril abroad.

Weighing in on a tight Democratic race, the statewide paper's board said in its endorsement Saturday night that Democratic challenger Barack Obama "inspired our imaginations. But it was Clinton who inspired our confidence."

This endorsement isn't a surprise for a newspaper that kept Dennis Kucinich out of the last Iowa debate and writes off Ron Paul. The Register has picked the most war-friendly Democrat and a war supporter on the Republican side as well.
