It was so disheartening to see Colin Powell give in to the politics of race and endorse Barack Obama last election cycle. When asked if he would endorse again on Fox News, he was quite reticent, to the point of tapdancing around the issue.
Powell was firm in saying that he would not endorse Obama right now. I remember seeing Powell as a leader in the Republican party, a voice of reason. Once he endorsed Obama, his standing was diminished, because ostensibly, he should have valued McCain’s experience over Obama’s lack of the same. Now, many are interested in his views after three years of failed policies from the Obama Administration. I’ll continue to hope against hope that he returns to reason.
