North Korea Endorses Barack Obama

Congratulations, Senator Obama. You have the lead in endorsements from dictators, well at least one. DPRK Studies The Chosun Shinbo (조선신보, also Romanized as Chosun Sinbo), a newspaper in Japan controlled by the North Korean organization Chosun Soren (a.k.a the General Association of Korean Residents in Japan, 재일본 조선인 총련합회), has endorsed Barack Obama over John McCain in the upcoming U.S. presidential elections. This is not to be confused with American-style endorsements from newspapers as communications from the Chosun Soren and via the Chosun Shinbo are generally understood as the official position of the North Korean regime: The newspaper expressed hope of better ties between North Korea and the United States under an Obama administration
