Stack Overflow Sets an Example for News Commenting Systems

The premise?  Stack Overflow, a new-ish site for programmers to answer each other’s questions, has a great voting system for comments, which are really just the answers to the questions.

Wouldn’t it be cool if your news site’s commenting system allowed you, as an editor, to choose the best comment and highlight it in the thread, or pull it up to the top?  I’m talking about a checkbox here, not a copy/paste job.
