Powell Endorses Obama!

Breaking news — former Secretary of State Colin Powell has endorsed Barack Obama as his candidate!

This is more terrible news for “McCainiacs,” while giving Obama another big boost in the polls.  It also goes some distance (IMHO) in rehabilitating Powell’s credentials as a person of substance and thoughtfulness.

Oh yeah, and I have to think that on some level, payback is sweet!

    I was also delighted to read his quote in the same article about the importance of not caving into anti-Muslim sentiment. Powell also spoke against the insinuations by some Republicans that Obama is a Muslim.

    “Well, the correct answer is, he is not a Muslim, he’s a Christian. He’s always been a Christian,” he said. “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? Yet, I have heard senior members of my own party drop the suggestion, ‘He’s a Muslim and he might be associated terrorists.’ This is not the way we should be doing it in America.”

    Good for Powell for asserting this. Perhaps that’s where his being a “moderate Republican” works in his favor – he won’t be as readily branded as a liberal ‘tool’… although I must admit, I wish I had heard this from Obama’s camp, too. (Or was it said and did I not know about it?)
