In 1860, three years after its founding, “The Atlantic” endorsed Abraham Lincoln and would not again until 104 years later with Lyndon B. Johnson. In only its third-ever endorsement, they do so for Hillary Clinton. It’s not hard at all to seize upon the common thread: to battle for equality for all, the foundation of American democracy. And although one could argue as with Johnson, this is not a pure endorsement, but one against the evils of the opponent, so be it. The endorsement stands as one proclaiming the essential nature of this election and what it demands of us in return — to protect the Constitution in this delicate, hazardous moment.
