The Alaska's largest newspaper has endorsed Barack Obama.
By contrast, "Sen. Barack Obama, the Democratic nominee, brings far more promise to the office. In a time of grave economic crisis, he displays thoughtful analysis, enlists wise counsel and operates with a cool, steady hand. The same cannot be said of Sen. McCain."
McCain personality and his handling of the presidential campaign drew a sharp criticism from the paper: "Sen. McCain describes himself as a maverick, by which he seems to mean that he spent 25 years trying unsuccessfully to persuade his own party to follow his bipartisan, centrist lead. "
McCain "embraces the extreme Republican orthodoxy he once resisted and cynically asks Americans to buy for another four years."
"it is Sen. Obama who truly promises fundamental change in Washington."
