Rolling Stone has a giant crush on Barack Obama. The magazine endorsed Barack Obama. This is the first time in its history it has issued a primary season endorsement. Here's how the ode to Obama begins:
The tides of history are rising higher and faster these days. Read them right and ride them, or be crushed. And then along comes Barack Obama, with the kinds of gifts that appear in politics but once every few generations. There is a sense of dignity, even majesty, about him, and underneath that ease lies a resolute discipline. It's not just that he is eloquent — with that ability to speak both to you and to speak for you — it's that he has a quality of thinking and intellectual and emotional honesty that is extraordinary.
The strong endorsement also calls Hillary Clinton a capable and personable senator, but regrets that her campaign represents everything that makes "us so discouraged about our politics." Check out the entire endorsement tittled "A New Hope." You can grab a hard copy on tomorrow's newsstands.
Does this type of dramatic endorsement impact you? If not, perhaps it still represents a sentiment shared by many Americans.
