The New York Times has endorsed John McCain and Hillary Clinton for the GOP and Democratic presidential nominations, respectively.
In the endorsements, to run in Friday’s edition, The Times highlighted each candidate’s perceived ability to undo what it called the harm of the Bush administration.
The McCain endorsement underscored the Arizona senator’s appeal across party lines, though the paper said it has disagreements with every Republican candidate.
“Still, there is a choice to be made, and it is an easy one. Senator John McCain of Arizona is the only Republican who promises to end the George Bush style of governing from and on behalf of a small, angry fringe. With a record of working across the aisle to develop sound bipartisan legislation, he would offer a choice to a broader range of Americans than the rest of the Republican field,” the endorsement said.
