Colin Powell Endorses Barack Obama For President

This is the Dawn of a New World-

“Powell, making his 30th appearance on “Meet the Press,” said he does not plan to campaign for Obama. He led into his endorsement by saying: “We’ve got two individuals — either one of them could be a good president. But which is the president that we need now — which is the individual that serves the needs of the nation for the next period of time.

“And I come to the conclusion that because of his ability to inspire, because of the inclusive nature of his campaign, because he is reaching out all across America, because of who he is and his rhetorical abilities — and you have to take that into account — as well as his substance — he has both style and substance, he has met the standard of being a successful president, being an exceptional president.”

Powell said that he is “troubled” by the direction of the Republican Party, and said he began to doubt Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) when he chose Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as his running mate.

“Not just small towns have values,” he said, responding to one of Palin’s signature lines.”

So mote it be.


  1. “But the really right answer is, what if he is? Is there something wrong with being a Muslim in this country? The answer’s no, that’s not America. Is there something wrong with some seven year-old Muslim-American kid believing that he or she could be president?”
