The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the state's largest newspaper, endorsed Barack Obama today.
"Throughout the campaign, Clinton has argued that she has the better grasp of official Washington, which is probably true. . . Unfortunately, the opposite is true as well — official Washington also has a better grasp on Clinton.
Perhaps burned by her experience in her husband's administration, she has too often chosen to play within the Washington system rather than dare to challenge its assumptions. And that's not the kind of leadership needed at the moment.
Obama . . . has demonstrated an appeal across many of the lines that have divided America. That is a critically important attribute, because the scale of changes that must be made to correct America's course cannot be accomplished with majorities of 50 percent plus one.
Different moments in history require different types of leaders, and part of the art of picking a president is matching the person to the challenge and to the time. . . Obama is the person; this is his time."
