Another deal maker for Obama

I don't mind that derisively. Raw Story reports that "The Economist" is now whole heartedly embracing Obama. The Economist is a sophisticated yet pro-free trade magazine out of England. That it has embraced Obama, who has an interventionist plan for the American economy, is more evidence that the powers that be feel that Obama is a chance they have to take in order to ensure global economic stability---something that they feel that McCain has no hope in doing. The Economist endorsement follows on the trail of the endorsement by the Financial Times of Obama.

In other words, even the conservative elites who run the world don't want McCain in office.

*on edit: The "Economist" and "Financial Times" endorsements could also be seen as a final rejection of Bush's policies and of Bush style political leadership after eight years.
