The Hartford Courant in 244 years has only endorsed a Democrat once. Today, guess what: it did it again. My readers are proof that I, a Republican and Reagan sub-cabinet officer, predicted this somewhat earlier, even before John McCain chose a running mate whom Colin Powell called ‘unqualified’ and the New York Times , not known for hyperbole, called ‘unfit’.
Ed Rollins, Ronald Reagan’s pollster, beat me to the punch. He said it ‘may’ be a landslide. I’m saying it without qualification. No one wants to be in the seat of the Chicago Tribune in 1948, saying John Dewey had won.
