Powell Endorses Obama
What had been speculated for weeks, became official this morning on Meet the Press. Former Secretary of State, and all around kick-ass American, Colin Powell crossed party lines and endorsed fellow black guy, Barack Obama. Powell said that the junior Senator from Illinois offers a “calm, patient, intellectual, steady approach” to the nation’s problems.
Powell, who considers McCain a close friend, couldn't reconcile the negative tenor the Republican campaign had taken on in recent weeks. “I thought that was over the top,” Mr. Powell told reporters. “It was beyond just good political fighting back and forth.”
Funny. The attack ads seemed to be working so well.
