A word from the boss

Today's New York Times has an editorial from someone who really doesn't want to speak in support of any particular politician.
Personally, for the last 25 years I have always stayed one step away from partisan politics. Instead, I have been partisan about a set of ideals: economic justice, civil rights, a humane foreign policy, freedom and a decent life for all of our citizens. This year, however, for many of us the stakes have risen too high to sit this election out.
Our American government has strayed too far from American values. It is time to move forward. The country we carry in our hearts is waiting.
This particular commentator caught me by surprise. It's difficult to imagine another living American of equal fame, stature, non-partisan background, and cultural credibility who could step forward.
