STOP THE PRESSES!
The Chicago Tribune, which in 161 years has NEVER endorsed a democratic candidate for president, has endorsed Barack Obama!
The Trib was there to endorse Abraham Lincoln. This is a story arc of historic proportions.
The Trib has had 12 years to vet Obama. If they don't have any dirt on him there is no dirt to be had. They have dozens of top notch investigative reporters who would love to make a name by breaking that story.
I bet there are caretakers in some area graveyards that are checking graves of departed editors for evidence of spinning.
