PI endorsements

It’s uncommon for web-only politically-interested outlets to do political endorsements. Some are party-leaning or -oriented enough that explicit endorsements would seem to be beside the point. Others try to maintain some distance from the parties, and endorsements wouldn’t help much there.

The online-only Seattle Post-Intelligencer, though, said today it does plan to make endorsements in the November general election. (Not, it says, in the primary election.) That will mark something of a change for the P-I, since so far as we can tell, it doesn’t run editorials, though it runs no lack of columnists, letters and the David Horsey cartoons.
