The Daily Texan, newspaper of the University of Texas, has endorsed Hillary. And I love one of the reasons:
But during Thursday’s debate, Obama made a major gaffe in incorrectly stating that he had received endorsements from every major newspaper in Texas. We may not be considered a “major” paper to many, but we represent a crucial constituency of close to 50,000 young and enthusiastic voters, and we’ve been scrutinizing every move of the candidates leading up to today’s endorsement. Sure, Obama took many under his spell when he graced our city with his presence early in his campaign, but we think he prematurely considered his work in Austin done.
A ”major gaffe?” There’s nothing like a student editor scorned. This reason is even better, however:
We’ve taken into account our communication with each campaign as an indication of how each candidate’s government would function. Upon finding out the debate would not be open to students, Obama’s campaign told us there was nothing they could do to get more students into the debate, whereas the Clinton camp was sympathetic in offering assistance. This makes us wonder how far Obama would go for us as president.
What’s the next crucial question in choosing a president? Maybe who can score Hannah Montana tickets?
