For only the third time in its 159-year history, the editors of The Atlantic are endorsing a presidential candidate. (The other two were Abraham Lincoln in 1860 and Lyndon B. Johnson in 1964.) However, their endorsement (entitled "Against Donald Trump") is as much an endictment as it is an endorsement. [Found at The Atlantic]
