2008: Barack Obama

The Sun continued its recent pattern of endorsing Democratic presidential candidates in 2008. The Sun praised Sen. John McCain's leadership in the Senate and pronounced him qualified for the presidency, but it chose Mr. Obama instead, calling him "that rarest of public servants, an inspirational leader who would transcend any enduring racial barriers and call upon the best in the American character, a public servant who also possesses the finely honed political skills necessary to turn the nation's highest ideals into practical policies that benefit citizens."
