    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?

    If the Times likes him then I think it reveals a true lack of Rep/Conserv. credentilas on Mc Cains part.

    In some ways, you're right, Ivon. But the Times editorial board is not exactly a paragon of analysis. I can imagine them just holding their nose while picking McCain. Their editorials are rife with an agenda, and the choice of McCain may very well be a Kiss of Death as Tentmaker alluded to.

    That said, there are days I wish I still got the Times. But six newspapers a day? I only have so much time :)

    I doubt that the NY Conservative Party ( http://www.cpnys.org/ ) would endorse McCain or Ron Paul. In NY it is virturally impossible for a Republican to win a statewide race without the Conservative Party endorsement. (NY has the fusion ballott)

    Let's phrase it this way. It is virtually impossible for a GOP presidential candidate to win NY.

    Why does one need New York or the Times to be elected? New York has not cast its electoral votes for a Republican since 1984, and if memory serves me right, the Republicans have won most of those elections.

    I think that's more accurate.
