You gotta love a paper like the Des Moines Register whose editor refuses to discuss immigration or foreign policy in the debate and then endorses McCain, citing his immigration and foreign policy views and experience. ( Both the Des Moines Register and the Boston Globe of course do McCain no favors with the base by citing immigration and opposition to Bush tax cuts as top reasons they support him.) But I stopped believing 99% of newspaper endorsements mattered in 1980 (confirmed in 1984) when practically none would endorse Reagan.
