The NYT endorsed Obama today. They also put up an interesting time-line of all of their endorsements. Of the 37 prior elections they chose the winner 21 times, a 57% percent record. Surprising to me they didn't endorse TDR of FDR (in his 1st term). They have endorsed 12 Republicans. Six of them from 1860 through 1884 Lincoln (2 terms), Grant, Hayes (2 terms), Garfield. and then Wendell Wilkie. And again in the 40's and early 50's with Wilkie, Dewey and Eisenhower. The time-line also links to .pdfs of the endorsements.
