The NYT presidential endorsement

The New York Times Editorial Board announced its official endorsement for the 2016 presidential race Saturday and it’s, well, not really all that surprising.

Another recent piece from the board looks at the election from the perspective of the opposing party, featuring an excellent opening line with a modified version of Thomas Hobbes’ famous Leviathan quote.

We’ve seen similar opinions shared at other national papers, but this is certainly an important endorsement when one considers the sheer enormity of the New York Times’ circulation and influence.
