....Most seriously, Candidate Kerry's clearest position on the war undercuts the cause a President Kerry would be obligated to fight. As Washington Post columnist Jim Hoagland put it: "Kerry's repeated denunciations of Iraq as the wrong war in the wrong place at the wrong time weaken the moral and perhaps even the legal base for ordering Americans to continue to fight there if he becomes President." World leaders those Kerry intends to rally and those already committed could not responsibly risk their citizens in a misbegotten fight.
At this critical juncture, America cannot afford such a lack of clarity or even a hint that a President would revert to playing defense rather than staying on the offensive. Nor would it be wise to change commanders midbattle in Iraq and around the globe, replacing a tested leader with a man who would have to learn on the job under the most difficult circumstances. With so much at stake, that's a transition not to be wished for.
Returning Bush to office is the wise course, The News believes, despite our sharp disagreement with his domestic policies. Those pale in comparison with the overarching challenge of securing the nation and preserving New York's vital way of life. Of the two candidates, Bush has the clearer vision for accomplishing the goal, as well as the greater experience. He gets our endorsement.

All the very best.
Thank you - judging from the voters in Philly I talked to, I would say that Kerry has a slight edge there. Bush is winning in the burbs.
I am also going to tell the Philly voters today to watch "Stolen Honor" that's showing today on the PAX channel.
It should help in Queens, Long Island and New Jersey, but not Manhattan.
Interesting that the Leftists who control the Daily News webroom didn't see fit to post this editorial on the main page of their web page. But they did include the insipid Mike Lupica.
"Why on earth will they endorse President Bush today, when they have been trying to get his defeated by all their headlines day after day?"
Maybe word came down from Mt. St. Hillary?!?
Yes, you certainly were! :)
Were, am and always will be.
The mistress of certitude.
Among other things...
Bump!! From a LIBERAL RAG TOO!!
You're scaring me, again...
I like to keep you on your toes.
You really walked into that one, dear.
I like to keep a leg up on things, babe.
LOVE that title!
I knew you would sling back at me with that.
I see you're stepping very carefully around it.
