New York Times endorses Elizabeth Warren and Amy Klobuchar for President of the United States

New York Times endorses Elizabeth Warren and Amy Klobuchar for President of the United States. By Steven Hayward.

The only surprise is that the NYT endorsed two candidates. Maybe not such a surprise — it endorsed all the non-white-men remaining in the race:

Interesting video to watch (above). Imagine being a politician and feeling you have to do this sort of thing.

The Times is calling it a “break with convention,” but it is exactly the opposite: clearly they cannot endorse a white male, no matter how experienced or qualified. Nothing is more conventional for liberalism today than the default to identity politics.

The Times endorsement essay offers some wonderful comedy writing, such as: “Senator Warren is a gifted storyteller.” Did no one at the Times pause for a moment to ponder how true this is?

The other night, the fracas over whether Bernie said a woman could or could not win the US presidency? As Tucker Carlson said:
