National Review to Endorse Mitt Romney

RedState will be endorsing no one if I have my way, btw. We all have our candidates, but this site should overall take a neutral stance, I think, and let each individual here make his own case for his preferred candidate. We're in this together against the Democrats regardless of who the nominee is.
But, anyway, Drudge says NR is endorsing Mitt. I thought they had months ago just reading over there. Is anyone surprised?
Consider this an open thread. I'm off to get sworn into office. Fear me, dirty hippies. ;)
[Update from Ben]: Yes, it's true. Follow the cover link. As an aside, I am still trying to convince Erick that we ought to endorse a candidate. He just doesn't like my top three. Wuss.
An excerpt from NR: "More than the other primary candidates, Romney has President Bush’s virtues and avoids his flaws. His moral positions, and his instincts on taxes and foreign policy, are the same. But he is less inclined to federal activism, less tolerant of overspending, better able to defend conservative positions in debate, and more likely to demand performance from his subordinates. A winning combination, by our lights. In this most fluid and unpredictable Republican field, we vote for Mitt Romney."
