How Obama can Step on McCain’s “Convention Bounce:” Colin Powell
I understand how unlikely this is, and how incredibly tough it would be for a lifelong, prominent Republican of Powell’s stature to endorse a Democrat, but really, does he have a choice now?:
Powell’s adviser said the vice presidential picks for both candidates would be a major factor in his decision, both for the quality of each man’s running mate and for what sort of “signal that choice sends about the character and judgment of the candidate.” (Aug 13th)
General Powell has no choice. He’s concerned about the 21st Century, restoring our image of the world, and the VP choice and what it says about the character and judgment of the candidate? In the style of Keith Olbermann, “Sir, you have an obligation to your country, sir.”
I hope and pray the Obama camp is aggressively courting him now that the facts are in.
