The Economist: The Ultimate Swing Voter

The Corner’s Andrew Stuttaford reacts to The Economist’s Obama endorsement:

The Economist….
…endorses Obama, as it did John Kerry (2004), Bill Clinton (1992) and no-one (1984, 1988). Yes, it endorsed Ronald Reagan in 1980, Bob Dole in 1996 and George W Bush in 2000, but to portray this particular endorsement as an Obamacon moment seems like a stretch.
