Herald endorses Brown, sun rises in east...

There seem to be some people excited about this endorsement of Scott Brown by the Boston Herald:
If you love what’s going on in Washington, well, then by all means vote for Martha Coakley. She’s a perfectly nice person, and she won’t make a dime’s worth of difference in the balance of power in Washington.

But if you’re not happy with the status quo, if you think the way business is being conducted on Capitol Hill today is a disgrace and an affront to taxpayers, then you probably agree it’s time for a change.

Scott Brown can single-handedly deliver on that kind of change and the Herald is pleased to endorse his candidacy in the race for U.S. Senate.
It's nice, I suppose, but essentially meaningless. The Herald's not the Globe. This is a "dog bites man" story, as will be the Globe's eventual and inevitable endorsement of Coakley. It doesn't hurt anything, but it doesn't help anything, either. The only possible endorsement which could impact this race at all would be if the Globe endorsed Brown, which isn't going to happen.
