Diaz explains election editorial process

"Our goal is not so much to turn elections as to offer readers an independent analysis of campaigns and ballot measures that can be complex and confusing -- sometimes by design," Chron editorial page editor John Diaz explains in a column on Sunday.

Diaz also notes:
    "[F]or all the Republicans who complain about newspaper bias, I offer this fact: The surge of endorsements for Democrat Obama is the exception, not the rule. Since 1940, the Republican candidate has been endorsed by a majority of U.S. dailies in all but three elections - 1964 (Johnson over Goldwater), 1992 (Clinton over Bush and Perot) and 2004 (Kerry over Bush).
