If you haven’t spent the day in church, under a rock, or on the soccer field, by now you’ve probably heard that Colin Powell has come out and endorsed Obama for president.
I have always liked Colin Powell. I’ve always considered him an intelligent, thoughtful, moderate politician. I think he has earned respect from people on both sides of the aisle. I was even pulling for him to decide to run against Clinton in 1996.
So, I was reading one of the news reports on his endorsement and came upon the following paragraph …
“I think he would be a transformational president. For that reason I will be voting for Senator Barack Obama,” said Powell, who was the first African-American to serve as chairman of the joint chiefs of staff.
Like I said, I have always thought of Colin Powell as intelligent and thoughtful — I think he’s also shown himself as a person that has a true patriotism.
Note: nowhere in any of my thoughts or ramblings have I said a thing about his race. I mean REALLY???? Does it MATTER???
So I figured this would give me an excuse to try out the poll daddy button on the wordpress toolbar.
