Times Union endorses Kerry
Times Union endorses Kerry (unlike the tedious Saratogian):
....It's something of a redundancy to talk of the seriousness of an election. To think of any election as unimportant is to begin to undermine democracy itself. But Tuesday's election does have an unusual urgency to it. Mr. Bush has neither been the kind of president he said he'd be, nor the kind of leader the country needs in a time that's neither peaceful nor especially prosperous.
We're convinced that a vote for Mr. Kerry and Sen. John Edwards is a vote to begin the long process of making the country more free, more secure and more respected.
