The New York Post endorsed Sen. Barack Obama for the Democratic presidential nomination Wednesday, calling him an “untried candidate” but a preferable alternative to the newspaper’s home state senator, Hillary Rodham Clinton.
Clinton and her husband, the former president, “stand for deja vu all over again — a return to the opportunistic, scandal-scarred, morally muddled years of the almost infinitely self-indulgent Clinton co-presidency,” the paper wrote. “Does America really want to go through all that once again? It will — if Senator Clinton becomes president.”
“A return to Senator Clinton’s cattle-futures deal, Travelgate, Whitewater, Filegate, the Lincoln Bedroom Fire Sale, Pardongate — and the inevitable replay of the Monica Mess? No, thank you,” the paper wrote.
