Colin Powell endorses Barack Obama for president

WASHINGTON – Former Secretary of State Colin Powell has endorsed Democrat Barack Obama for president, describing the Illinois senator as a “transformational figure.”

Powell says both Obama and Republican John McCain are qualified to be commander in chief. But, in an interview Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” he said Obama is better suited to handle the nation’s economic problems as well as help improve it’s standing in the world.

Powell expressed disappointment in the negative tone of McCain’s campaign, as well as in his choice of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as the Republican vice presidential nominee. Powell says he does not believe Palin is ready to take over as president,

Funny as hell to me, the Bruddas are sticking together but if “Whitey” chooses not to follow the “Messiah” Whitey is RACIST!!!! :dancinghappy:

I love the way Powell says “Sarah Palin is not ready”, yet Obama has not stepped in an office of leadership other than leading a crew of thugs in ACORN, a Group of LAWYERS, or some “LIKE MINDED” Socialists. BUT Sarah Palin is not ready?

This is a typical race play, Obama is the BLACK Candidate, and it wouldn’t surprise me if Condi Rice came out to support him too…. This is a RACE about RACE now believe it, no matter what the media is trying to say.. IT is a racial power play, have at it my brothers.

The Nuclear Option for Obama.

The Nuclear Option for Obama.

It appears that Collin Powell might endorse Obama?

Sources say former Secretary of State Colin Powell will endorse Barack Obama at the Democratic National Convention, Weekly Standard Editor Bill Kristol told FOX News exclusively on Thursday.

“He may well give a speech at the Democratic convention explaining his endorsement of Obama,” Kristol said, citing inside sources.

“This is not an absolute done deal, but these people are very confident that Powell will endorse Obama,” Kristol said, adding that he thinks Powell still has “a high respect” for John McCain, Obama’s Republican rival.

Powell spokeswoman Peggy Cifrino strongly denied the report.

“There’s absolutely no truth to it whatsoever,” Cifrino told FOXNews.com. “Colin Powell will not be at either convention. There’s absolutely no truth to this.”

An endorsement by Powell could go a long way to attracting moderates and wayward Republicans to the presumptive Democratic presidential candidate. The Rest Here

If you think Powell Endorsing Obama wouldn’t hurt McCain’s chances.. THINK again.

I think this would be the Obama camps “Nuclear Option” IF they get backed into a corner, the Powell factor will come to the forefront.

My reason is this: IF Powell endorses Obama I might even vote for him, and so would EVERY Black person in the country, as well as every free thinking American that isn’t a “party above country” person. On the contrary, if Powell endorsed McCain I would feel a LITTLE bit better if I had to vote for McCain. Powell being involved in this fight is not a good thing either way IMO.
IF Powell stays on the sidelines he is basically saying “Either one of these guys are ok with me” in which case Obama gains the upper hand, if Powell throws his support behind Obama, Obama becomes President. UNLESS Powell comes out and supports McCain with full fan fare, McCain probably won’t win.

IF Powell decided to run for President I’d vote for him. IF Powell decided to become McCain’s running mate, I’d feel a lot better about voting for McCain.

In conclusion, I think Powell is the gate keeper, he is holding all the keys and if he waits till late October, then spouts “I am supporting Obama” get ready for 4 years of Liberal leadership. Oh and it will be a clean sweep, it will be the congress too, that endorsement of an UBER liberal president, will trickle down to the senate and house.

Powell has an entire nations respect, Powell is the one that should be running for President.

In My Opinion of course.
