Hugh McColl: The country needs Obama

Posted by on Mon, Oct 6, 2008 at 2:14 PM

Not very common for a major newspaper to turn space over to a private citizen to write his/her political endorsements. Nor, says Hugh McColl, is it common for him to write one. But McColl -- banker/leader of Charlotte (no offense to Pat McCrory) -- endorses Barack Obama for president in the Charlotte Observer

The economic disarray threatening our community and nation poses critical challenges but also presents opportunity. We can observe the presidential candidates in the crucible of crisis.

Only one of them demonstrates the needed intellect, fortitude and temperament. That is why I have decided to publicly support Barack Obama.
