A Matter Of Opinion

Our view: McCain over Obama

The editorial board of the S-R has endorsed John McCain for president. A couple of the reasons:

Once in office, either candidate would probably bring a collaborative approach to the job. But big issues require more than that. In managing the Middle East conflict, Obama and McCain both offer the country better leadership than it's had the past eight years. Obama's early opposition to the war in Iraq has proved correct, but the unpopular war is now a reality, and McCain's experience equips him to manage that conflict to an honorable conclusion.

At home, rapidly eroding economic conditions call for a firm, thoughtful and bipartisan response. That's more likely if a fiscally conservative Republican is in the White House to counterbalance the Democrat-dominated Congress.
