      Post endorses Kerry

      REUTERS

      WASHINGTON, OCTOBER 24 After the New York Times, the Washington Post
      endorsed Senator John Kerry for President in its Sunday edition,
      saying the Democratic candidate had wisdom and open-mindedness that
      made him a stronger candidate to lead the United States than
      President George W. Bush.
      Some 10 days before the election, the Massachusetts Democrat now
      leads Bush 66 to 57 in newspaper endorsements, according to the
      trade publication Editor and Publisher.

      Papers endorsing Kerry, including the New York Times, have a
      combined circulation of 10.6 million readers, compared to a combined
      circulation of 6.6 million for papers endorsing Bush, Editor and
      Publisher said.

      Kerry also picked up an endorsement in the Sunday edition of the
      Chicago Sun-Times, a major regional paper near Midwestern
      battleground states, Editor and Publisher said. Chicago's other
      daily, the Tribune, has endorsed Bush.

      The Post, which is one of the most influential US papers, said Kerry
      would manage the federal budget more responsibly than Bush and would
      better protect healthcare, the environment and civil liberties.

      Kerry understands foreign threats and would do a better job of
      nation-building in Iraq, it said.

      The Post's editorial page has supported Bush's decision to go to war
      in Iraq, but said he did not adequately prepare for reconstruction
      after Saddam Hussein was defeated. At home, Bush has governed as a
      heavy-handed Republican partisan and promoted tax cuts at the
      expense of fiscal health, the Post said.

      In 2000, the Post endorsed Democratic candidate Al Gore.
