PoliTex notes the lone Texas newspaper among the five biggest to stump for someone other than John McCain in the Republican Presidential primary is the Dallas Morning News, who went for Mike Huckabee. The post says that they made this choice back in December, but the linked endorsement piece is dated February 7, so I'm not sure what to make of that. In any event, this bit of reasoning from their endorsement is interesting:
"I'm a conservative," he likes to say. "I'm just not mad about it." Along those lines, what sold us on Mr. Huckabee is a sense that of all the Republicans, he is the change agent the nation most needs. John McCain, whose candidacy is quite appealing despite concern about his age and temperament, was arguably that man once. But his moment has passed.
