Colin Powell Endorses Obama

This is major!

Former Secretary of State Colin Powell announced Sunday that he will be voting for Sen. Barack Obama, citing the Democrat’s “ability to inspire” and the “inclusive nature of his campaign.”

“He has both style and substance. I think he is a transformational figure,” Powell said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

“Obama displayed a steadiness. Showed intellectual vigor. He has a definitive way of doing business that will do us well,” Powell said.

Powell, a retired U.S. general and a Republican, was once seen as a possible presidential candidate himself.


Powell served as secretary of state under President Bush from 2001 to 2005.

    Um…sure…now, what did I say? (blush, tee-hee, brain like a sieve, you know…)

    Colin Powell is a highly respected man in our household. We’ve always held him in the highest esteem. He’s a man of good judgment, integrity, common sense, and intelligence. In our opinion, he’s demonstrating his good judgment by coming out in support of Barack Obama, and Senator Obama will benefit from this support. This is a great thing!
