I was right on four out of five predictions for the Albuquerque Journal endorsements. They went with repubican congressional candidate Tinsley down south, republican bush supporter White in this congressional district, Democrat Ben Ray Lujan up north, and Democrat Tom Udall for Senator. They drank the Kool-Aid and endorsed John McCain even though their poll showed Obama with a commanding lead. I would love to have been a Fly on the Wall to listen to the infighting on that Presidential endorsement. I have a feeling that the reclusive publisher, Tom Lang, got his way. I wonder if he ever considered Sarah Palin as perhaps being a factor. No mention of her in the endorsement. Well, he does own the newspaper!

What influence can the endorsements have when 87% of registered Dems in p 150 have already voted. There are barely enough voters left to make a line.
