Editor -in-Chief Ray Rogers lays out the mag's support for the Democratic senator from Illinois today: "Obama is a beacon of hope for a disillusioned public desperate for an intelligent and committed leader who can help this nation recover from the dire consequences of eight years under the Bush administration. He represents our hope for a leader in tune with the needs, fears, and frustrations of this diverse nation, a candidate, whom, we believe, is most willing to end an unjust war in Iraq, and best prepared to help us bounce back from a devastating economic freefall..." As for McCain: "In choosing Alaska Governor Sarah Palin as his running mate, Senator John McCain did a grave disservice to his campaign, and to the voters of this nation, women and men, who will not be hoodwinked by a folksy charm that cannot mask inexperience and inability." BlackBook joins Esquire, which has also endorsed Obama. [BlackBook]
