In one article the Argus Leader highlights the fact that Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton basically have the same policy positions and list several “important” ones to South Dakotans. They then endorse the one whose nomination would more than likely result in the splintering of the Democratic party in another.
Her resilience and determination never should be questioned. She has met or overcome every challenge or roadblock in her way, and there have been many. Her determination to carry the nomination process through to its real conclusion has perhaps earned her a grudging respect from those who would never support her.
Clinton might not win this race. In fact, it’s a long shot. But whatever some might say, the race is not over, and her name is on the ballot. Win or lose, she’s also the best Democratic candidate for South Dakota.
Say what you want about our state’s largest paper, they are at least consistent. They consistently have you scratching your head that is.
UPDATE: Cory over at the Madville Times adds his take on the Argus Endorsement.
Failing to make any real policy distinction between Clinton and Obama, maybe that Sioux Falls paper is just thanking Clinton for sending the paper’s web hits to the moon last week with the RFK assassination comment video.
