A KERRY ENDORSEMENT….John Kerry has won his first newspaper endorsement:

Kerry immeasurably improves our chances of defeating terrorism and making the world safer. In a bitter fight in a divided America, reassurance that Kerry has the support of the rest of the world could be a decisive factor in key swing states. We must offer that signal.

OK, it’s from the Observer in Great Britain, but still. It’s a start.

UPDATE: In comments, I see that Kerry’s first endorsement was actually from the Philadelphia Daily News several weeks ago. And quite an endorsement it is….
