Senator Obama is a son of an immigrant. His father was born and raised in Kenya. Obama's father travelled to the United States on a scholarship to pursue his education at the University of Hawaii. It was there where Obama's parents met. Obama's father eventually went to Harvard, where he received his Ph.D. and later returned to Kenya, where he worked as a government economist until he died in a car crash in 1982. Obama travelled with his mother from Hawaii to Indonesia and lived in both California and New York before working in low-income communities in Chicago, Illinois.

A Columbia and Harvard alum who graduated as President of the prestigious Harvard Law Review, his credentials can match or surpass any other American president. But Obama's asset is his vision, his courage, and his integrity. His words touch every heart - the MTV generation rallies for him as much as do those who lived in the Kennedy era. Last night's Superbowl Champs, NY Giants, have decided to skip the traditional festivities in Disneyland, officially endorse Barack Obama and plan to attend Obama's speech today in New Jersey. He is leading across borders echoing MLK's words: "Unity is the great need of the hour."

There is a bit of each and every one of us in Obama. His story is our story. We believe that an Obama presidency will instantly reverse the public relations damage done by the current administration and defuse anti-American passion around the world. We encourage Ethiopian Americans to vote for Senator Barack Obama.

It is only appropriate to close this endorsement with Obama's own words as he addressed the people of South Carolina who gave him a historical landslide victory:

"And as we leave this state with a new wind at our backs, and take this journey across the country we love with the message we've carried from the plains of Iowa to the hills of New Hampshire; from the Nevada desert to the South Carolina coast; the same message we had when we were up and when we were down - that out of many, we are one; that while we breathe, we hope; and where we are met with cynicism, and doubt, and those who tell us that we can't, we will respond with that timeless creed that sums up the spirit of a people in three simple words:   "Yes. We. Can."

endorsed Obama in an editorial set for publication on Oct. 26:

Obama's vision and potential to be that change agent trump his relative lack of experience, though the experience he possesses is valuable. The maturity and calm demeanor he has exhibited these past two years in the public spotlight and earlier, speak to able, careful, inclusive leadership. And he is simply the better of the two on the issues. ...

McCain, an early supporter of the invasion, was later a critic of how the war was being waged, supporting a surge that Obama opposed. But McCain now fails to recognize that Americans want something different than his open-ended approach. ...

And he also has squandered his claim to one of his supposed assets - his experience, as a military man and member of Congress for 26 years. Simply, he has displayed deplorable judgment in key instances that call into question the value of his overall judgment.

In Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, the 72-year-old candidate with a history of melanoma picked a woefully unqualified running mate - as she continues to prove day after day. And both he and she have conducted a campaign that has careened from inept to offensive.
