New York Times Endorsements Through the Ages

NY Times Endorsement of Abraham Lincoln, 1860

The New York Times’ Endorsements Through the Ages is “a collection of The Times’s endorsements for the presidency, from Abraham Lincoln in 1860 through the editorial board’s choice of Senator Barack Obama this year.”  Reading through them is not particularly interesting just to see who they endorsed – there is remarkable party loyalty – but instead to read the paper’s expectations for the coming term.
