Powell Endorses Obama; Look What Happened Last Time the We Listened to Him

WASHINGTON, DC, 2008-10-22 — Former Secretary of State, Colin Powell, has endorsed Barack Obama for President of the United States.

In an appearance on NBC's Meet the Press, Powell said that he thought Obama was a transformational figure and that John McCain was too nasty.

"I think he is a transformational figure, he is a new generation coming onto the world stage, and for that reason I'll be voting for Senantor Barack Obama," Powell said. "Obama has displayed a steadiness, an intellectual curiosity, a depth of knowledge. My former friend John McCain has not. He went to the front lines of a war when he could have had a desk job like mine! What an idiot! He crashed his plane! That's not steady! And he could have got out of jail early, but chose to stay another 5 years! What a loony!

"Also, McCain's attack ads have been too nasty. Obama's attack ads have been much cleverer. You know, linking McCain, Bush's nemesis, to Bush " that is so outrageous it's a hoot! Ha ha ha!"

But, asked a reporter, look at the mess America got into the last time we took your advice. You were wrong on WMDs.

"It is still an unfolding situation," Powell replied.

And wrong about linking Iraq to al Qaeda.

"I have not seen smoking gun concrete evidence about the connection, but I think the possibility of some connections did exist and was prudent to consider them at the time that we did."
