Somewhat reluctantly, The Economist has endorsed John Kerry. It is more to do with what George W. Bush has done, than what John Kerry might do:
After three necessarily tumultuous and transformative years, this is a time for consolidation, for discipline and for repairing America's moral and practical authority. Furthermore, as Mr Bush has often said, there is a need in life for accountability. He has refused to impose it himself, and so voters should, in our view, impose it on him, given a viable alternative. John Kerry, for all the doubts about him, would be in a better position to carry on with America's great tasks.
On a relatred note, sharp-eyed readers may have noticed that I added a Kerry/Edwards banner to the sidebar of some of my pages. Like The Economist, I endorse Kerry on the basis of him being the lesser of two evils.
