CHICAGO TRIBUNE ENDORSEMENT: Chicago Tribune endorses Barack Obama for president -- "This endorsement makes some history for the Chicago Tribune. This is the first time the newspaper has endorsed the Democratic Party's nominee for president."

I can hear the cons. crying about the "liberal media" already. I'm not sure I would count The Chicago Tribune as a liberal media out let any more then I would say Fox News is fair and balanced.

The Tribune in its earliest days took up the abolition of slavery and linked itself to a powerful force for that cause--the Republican Party. The Tribune's first great leader, Joseph Medill, was a founder of the GOP. The editorial page has been a proponent of conservative principles. It believes that government has to serve people honestly and efficiently.

They go on to talk about McCain's reckless vice presidential pick and his tax policy that is going to add trillions more to the budget. It's is pretty interesting reading.
