First presidential endorsements by the LAT since Richard Nixon in 1972.
On Barack Obama: "Either of the Democratic candidates would make a strong nominee. But just because the ballot features two strong candidates does not mean that it is difficult to choose between them." Sunday editorial
On John McCain: "At a different moment in American history, we would hesitate to support a candidate for president whose social views so substantially departed from those we hold. But in this election, nothing less than America's standing in the world turns on the outcome." Sunday editorial
