Abraham Lincoln,
Republican candidate for the presidency, 1860
An interesting and creative interactive graphic that chronicles all the presidential endorsements of the venerable Old Gray Lady since 1860. The striking revelation of this timeline is how the Democratic and Republican parties have categorically reversed their identities over the past century and a half. Each election element of this graphic also includes the text of the New York Times endorsement.
