A commentary by Edward Hershey in the Blue Oregon blog this week notes that The Oregonian will not be endorsing a presidential candidate this election for the first time, maybe ever. Why?

 

Hershey writes: “This is about pragmatism, not philosophy. What is most likely at play here is that the two men now driving editorial policy at the O — publisher Chris Anderson and editorial page editor Erik Lukens — understand it would be bad business to endorse Romney. But both would just about die rather die than endorse Obama.”
