Daily Nebraskan Endorses Obama
Advertisements [?]
We endorse Barack Obama because he is the only candidate who truly represents the politics of unity; he's the one remaining candidate who stands a chance at overcoming the hate-filled politics that have stopped Washington in its tracks. He's someone we can finally believe in.

We've seen him turn out record crowds of youth voters throughout the early voting states. There's a reason for that; in rallying on college campuses around the country and reaching out to young voters and college students more than any candidate in memorable history, Obama has established himself as the "students' candidate."

He generates real excitement in the future of the country, something that's been totally absent throughout the Bush years. In the first states to hold primary contests, Obama generated heavy support from independents and Republicans. Even the most cynical of us have seen Obama speak and - even for just a few minutes - felt that there truly is hope to put the country on a new course and to unite a diverse group of Americans.

No other candidate is inspiring to that degree, to that many Americans.
An Obama presidency would put a new face on the United States in the eyes of the world as well. It would signal the end of the "Our Way or the Bomb Bay" foreign policy of the Bush administration and re-establish the respect that was squandered during the Bush years.

Obama has turned out enormous, energetic crowds on goodwill trips to Africa during his tenure in the United States Senate. As a result of his time living in Indonesia, Time Magazine reported in December that he is the most popular U.S. politician in rapidly-developing Southeast Asia.
