Colin Powell.. being smart as usual
Colin Powell May Support Democrat or Independent in 2008
Hey! It is great to see someone actually understands what the presidency SHOULD be all about. Colin Powell is a man who has served in so many ways that each and every American should thank him for his endless service. Whether it was proposing the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" compromise, coming up with the sane and militarily sound "Powell Doctrine" of massive build-up and clear objectives before an invasion, or his exceptional record as Secretary of State (even under opposition and resistance of the Bush Administration at times).
I applaud Mr. Powell for speaking out to Americans and asking us to look beyond partisan lines to the horizon. I am not a Democrat and I do not support Obama but it is important for us all to look at ALL the candidates and choose according to who would be best as Commander-in-Chief and the Head Executive of this country. Who will lead us with the strength, resolve and will needed in these troubling times? Who would have the ability and know-how to not only talk about an agenda for America but put it into motion? Who has a vision that is bright but not unrealistically so? Who will mend our image, restore us to peaceful hegemony, and re-gain the trust and respect that America deserves?
These are the questions we should be asking our selves. So whether you are Democrat, Republican, Independent, or otherwise remember: if you don't see a candidate who would serve us right, write in Colin Powell.
