The New Yorker editors have made their choice re: their endorsement for President. They've chosen (spoiler alert!) Obama.
The whole article's worthwhile, but I like this particular quote:
The choice between experience and eloquence is a false one--something that Lincoln, out of office after a single term in Congress, proved in his own campaign of political and national renewal. Obama’s "mere" speeches on everything from the economy and foreign affairs to race have been at the center of his campaign and its success; if he wins, his eloquence will be central to his ability to govern.
The article spends a paragraph or two on a bunch of the major failures of the current administration: the economy, foreign policy/war in Iraq, the environment, &c. Condensed into a short article like this one, it's even more depressing to think about how our current government has done its best to ruin this country.
