    Alaska newspaper endorses Obama
    The paper praises Alaska Governor Palin’s passion and charisma
    top newspaper in the home state of Republican vice-presidential
    candidate Sarah Palin has endorsed Democratic candidate Barack Obama
    for president.Alaska’s largest-circulation paper, the Anchorage Daily
    News, said state governor Mrs Palin was “too risky” to be one step away
    from the presidency.In an editorial it says her nomination “captivated”
    Alaskans but that must not “overwhelm all other judgment”.The focus
    should be on John McCain, it said, calling him the “wrong
    choice”.’Stumbled badly’

    The newspaper said many Alaskans were
    “proud to see their governor, and their state, so prominent on the
    national stage”.It also described Mrs Palin as a “force to be reckoned
    with”.Obama has a “cool, steady hand”, the Alaska newspaper
    says”Passionate, charismatic and indefatigable, she draws huge crowds
    and sows excitement in her wake,” the editorial reads.

    it says that Republican presidential candidate John McCain has
    “stumbled and fumbled badly” in dealing with the economic crisis.”[John
    McCain] embraces the extreme Republican orthodoxy he once resisted and
    cynically asks Americans to buy for another four years”, it says.By
    contrast, the Daily News suggests, Mr Obama “brings far more promise to
    the office”.

    It says: “In a time of grave economic crisis, he
    displays thoughtful analysis, enlists wise counsel and operates with a
    cool, steady hand.”In other endorsements over the weekend the
    Times-Despatch in Richmond, Virginia, backed Mr McCain, saying he was
    “the clear and unambiguous choice” at a time when national security was
    the key issue.

    The Grand Rapids in Michigan supported Mr McCain
    for his “sheer depth of experience, principled courage and unassailable
    independence”.But the Baltimore Sun said Mr Obama’s “steadiness and
    thoughtful approach to issues show he has the judgment and depth of
    knowledge to lead the country”.
