Seattle Times Kind of Endorses Romney

The editors of The Seattle Times couldn't think of anyone really worthy of the Republican nomination, so they just endorsed Mitt Romney by default. They preface this nonendorsement with the disclaimer, "This is certainly no endorsement of Romney's candidacy." After all, they point out, "throughout the GOP campaign Romney has been his own biggest impediment," and "Romney does not excite voters and is a suspect choice." However, they ultimately concede, "the former Massachusetts governor has the most potential in a thin field to represent his party in head-to-head competition with Democratic President Barack Obama."
