The editorial board of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution has endorsed Barack Obama in the race for the Democratic Party’s nomination for President:
[Obama] has demonstrated an appeal across many of the lines that have divided America. That is a critically important attribute, because the scale of changes that must be made to correct America’s course cannot be accomplished with majorities of 50 percent plus one.
Different moments in history require different types of leaders, and part of the art of picking a president is matching the person to the challenge and to the time. So while both Clinton and Obama would make very good presidents, Obama is the person; this is his time.
Interestingly enough, Clinton’s name is mentioned nine times in the editorial, Obama’s name is mentioned six times.
The AJC will give an endorsement in the GOP race on Sunday, January 27th.
