Obama gets nod from New York Times; McCain gets Detroit News

UNDATED (AP) -- The latest newspaper endorsements for Barack Obama include one from the New York Times.

In an editorial first posted on its Web site last night, the Times says after nearly two years of what it calls "a grueling and ugly campaign," Obama "has met challenge after challenge, growing as a leader and putting real flesh on his early promises of hope and change." The Times adds that the Democrat as "shown a cool head and sound judgment."

The Aspen Daily News in Colorado says electing Obama would signal to the world that the country is "ready for open-minded global debate." Obama also picked up the endorsement of the News Journal of Wilmington, Delaware -- Joe Biden's home state.

But the Detroit News is backing John McCain. It says the Republican candidate "has what it takes to lead America" in very uncertain times, and praises him for "eschewing ideology" while seeking bipartisan agreements in the Senate.
