Obama gains nods in Pennsylvania

I have a special link to Pennsylvania, or "Pennsyltucky" as we used to call it (why?). My mom was born and raised in Lock Haven, in the central part of the state and I spent many weeks there growing up. I even went hunting went I was about 10. Anyway: While Beltway pundits and others in the national press have alleged that Barack Obama is clearly out of touch with most Pennsylvanians, leading newspapers in the state seem to disagree.

In recent days he has picked up the endorsements of the vast majority of these papers in Pennsylvania. Papers endorsing Obama include: The Philadelphia Inquirer, The Philadelphia Daily News, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Allentown Morning Call, The Patriot News of Harrisburg, the Scranton Times-Tribune and Bucks County Courier. Hillary Clinton's endorsements have been far fewer, such as the Daily Pennsylvanian,--the U of Penn paper -- though more may appear on Sunday.
