The endorsement bell rings: Des Moines Register Endorses Obama as does The Anchorage Daily News

The Sunday Des Moines Register is a must read as the editorial board of the paper endorses Obama.

And in other interesting endorsement news, Alaska's largest newspaper - The Anchorage Daily News - endorses Obama. That's right, not home state gal and Governor Sarah Palin, but Senator Barrack Obama.

While praising Palin's energy and bright future, the paper's editorial adds, "Yet despite her formidable gifts, few who have worked closely with the governor would argue she is truly ready to assume command of the most important, powerful nation on earth. To step in and juggle the demands of an economic meltdown, two deadly wars and a deteriorating climate crisis would stretch the governor beyond her range. Like picking Sen. McCain for president, putting her one 72-year-old heartbeat from the leadership of the free world is just too risky at this time."
