“The New York Times editorial board will publish our choice for the Democratic nomination for president on Jan. 19. It won’t be the first time the paper has endorsed a candidate — we’ve been doing that since 1860. In support of Abraham Lincoln’s candidacy, editors wrote: “Things will go on very much as they have hitherto — except that we shall have honesty and manliness instead of meanness and corruption.”
More than 150 years later, Americans are facing a critical choice. Foreign conflicts are brewing, and impeachment proceedings are unfolding at home. Citizens have the responsibility — constitutionally enshrined, more urgent than ever — to steer the nation’s course at the ballot box. Many candidates have vied for the Democratic Party’s nomination. Each offers a particular vision of the country’s future, and a different set of strengths and solutions each would call on to realize that vision.
The board’s endorsement process is an opportunity to ask hard questions and engage candidates in the kind of prolonged back and forth that reveals insights that don’t often emerge in debates or in campaign appearances.”
