Wikipedia says:

 	1. to support, to back, to give one's approval to, especially
 	   officially or by signature
 	2. To write one's signature on the back of a cheque when
 	   transferring it to a third party, or cashing it
 	3. To give or receive an endorsement


I think meaning #1 fits with what we like. It's like New York Times 
endorsing one of the presidential candidates.
