Colin Powell Endorses Obama

When former General and Secretary of State Powell endorsed Barack over the weekend, it was like someone yelled fire in a theatre. However, when conservatives black and white suggest that Powell's endorsement is because of "race".

Foul.

I would like to believe that his endorsement is because he believes in the policies that Obama has articulated across the country, but I find it hard to believe. In that case, I minds well drop my political principles and hit the lever for Obama and call it the day.

If I were to do that, it would be for the same reason a good majority, not everyone, because some, like Obama can articulate why they're voting for him and make valid points, however there are good number of blacks, white and whatever voting for him because he's black. And on the flip side to be fair, a few white folk voting for McCain because he's white. Either way, anyone who is voting for racial reasons are wrong and doing a disservice to both candidates.

So Powell endorses Obama. I guess since leaving Washington DC, Powell's income is under $249,000.00. He needs some wealth redistributed his way.
