Colin Powell Endorses Obama

As much as I have not -- unlike much of the media these days -- forgiven Colin Powell for his horrendous actions as a member of Team Bush in the run-up to the war in Iraq, I must say that this is a stirring endorsement of Obama and a repudiation of John McCain, the Republican Party, Sarah Palin and the right-wing. It will get conservatives all hot and bothered. And they will surely say it's just because he's black. Already, with all of the powerful things Powell said about Obama which could be focused on, Drudge is pushing it with the headline, "Powell For Obama: It's Not About Race."
