Gov. Palin's nomination clearly alters the landscape for Alaskans as we survey this race for the presidency -- but it does not overwhelm all other judgment. The election, after all is said and done, is not about Sarah Palin, and our sober view is that her running mate, Sen. John McCain, is the wrong choice for president at this critical time for our nation.
Political operatives are going to look back at this campaign, and call it the "death by a thousand cuts" campaign for the republicans.
This endorsement of Obama is only one of those cuts.
