This has to hurt more than it helps. McCain is already struggling to prove his republican-ism. This is definitely a liability. If the Times wanted to help McCain, they should have endorsed Romney. ETA: The Times on the others: Not sure I agree with this. I disagree w/ Giuliani's stance on the war but I'm not willing to accuse him of exploiting a tragedy. The Times are right about that. I tend to agree with their take on Huckabee as well. What says ye others about The Times endorsement?
