Dan Gillmor says the rumor mill has it that The Economist is endorsing John Kerry. They endorsed W in the previous election.
They seem very unenthused by either candidate, judging by their recent special election section. They were a bit of a tease by not endorsing either candidate.
Dan says their endorsement may not sway many voters, but it certainly *should*.
UPDATE: Indeed they *did* endorse Kerry.
This year's battle has been between two deeply flawed men: George Bush, who has been a radical, transforming president but who has never seemed truly up to the job, let alone his own ambitions for it; and John Kerry, who often seems to have made up his mind conclusively about something only once, and that was 30 years ago. But on November 2nd, Americans must make their choice, as must The Economist. It is far from an easy call, especially against the backdrop of a turbulent, dangerous world. But, on balance, our instinct is towards change rather than continuity: Mr Kerry, not Mr Bush.
