Secretary Colin Powell wants That One!

Four-star General Colin Powell, former Secretary of State under George W. Bush, former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff under George H.W. Bush, former National Security Adviser under Ronald Reagan, and 25-year friend of Senator John McCain, has endorsed Senator Barack Obama for President of the United States.

Secretary Powell, on Meet the Press this morning, and at a news conference immediately following, stated the reasons for his decision (and emphasized it was not because of "race"):
1) the Republicans' narrow focus on irrelevant personal attacks, especially "Muslim" and "Bill Ayers" and "ACORN" instead of a serious approach to today's challenges;
2) the selection of Governor Sarah Palin as the vice-presidential pick;
3) questions about John McCain's judgment';
4) the style and substance and temperment of Barack Obama;
5) Barack Obama will restore America's standing in the world and diplomatic choices in dealing with the world.

Watch the Meet the Press interview; it is very enlightening and informative.

Make sure to check your voter registration with your local clerk's office...this election will not be stolen!
