Kind of a drag.

The LA Times, in it's first presidential endorsement since 1972…
Palin is the most unqualified vice presidential nominee of a major party in living memory. The decision calls into question just what kind of thinking -- if that's the appropriate word -- would drive the White House in a McCain presidency.
The Chicago Tribune, endorsing a Democrat for the first time in the paper's 161 year history...
McCain failed in his most important executive decision...His campaign has tried to stage-manage Palin's exposure to the public. But it's clear she is not prepared to step in at a moment's notice and serve as president. McCain put his campaign before his country.
Both papers endorsed McCain in the Republican primary contest. It's not unreasonable to assume, given their histories, that both would have welcomed the opportunity to support him in the general. Sarah Palin made it impossible.

There's some speculation out there that Governor Palin may be the face of the Republican future. As a proudly partisan Democrat, I can only hope so.
