Senators Clinton and Obama split two big newspaper endorsements

by Turkana

The Des Moines Register has endorsed Senators Hillary Clinton and John McCain, for the Iowa Caucuses.

The Boston Globe has endorsed Senators Barack Obama and John McCain, for the New Hampshire primary.

These are the two largest newspapers, in their respective electoral regions.

It's not clear that newspaper endorsements have any real impact on caucus goers or voters, but every candidate wanted these. Senator Edwards, who won the Register's endorsement four years ago, has to be particularly disappointed. That Senator McCain, who long ago threw away whatever credibility he once had, to become a cheerleader for the worst president ever and a failed war, won both Republican endorsements once again proves the weakness of the Republican field.
