Connecticut Senate race: WaPo endorses Lieberman, NYT endorses Lamont

No real surprises here with the way the endorsements fell, considering the NYT’s anti-war Iraq stance and the WaPo’s pro-Iraq war stances (expressed in various editorials in the past). However, the WaPo’s editorial discusses Lieberman’s other strengths, in addition to his steadfast support of the Iraq war, while the NYT focuses primarily on Lamont being the anti-Bush/anti-Iraq war candidate that Lieberman isn’t.

Here’s the WaPo’s well-reasonsed endorsement of Lieberman, and the NYT’s “we’re ok with him because he’s not Lieberman” endorsement of Lamont.
