“Columnists for this newspaper are not allowed to endorse presidential candidates. But I think this election is so important, I am going to break the rules. I hope I don’t get fired. But here goes: I am endorsing George Bush for president. No, no — not George W. Bush. I am endorsing his father — George Herbert Walker Bush.”
Friedman, Thomas L. 2004. “The Apparent Heir.” New York Times. Oct. 31: WK11.
