I’ve been watching TV this morning as I’ve been blogging. General Colin Powell is endorsing Barack Obama. I fought in Vietnam as a nineteen-year-old soldier in the 1st Cavalry Division Airmobile. Colin Powell fought in Vietnam as a young officer. There is the Colin Powell Doctrine which says you go in with overwhelming military force and you have an exit strategy. Of course Powell is a Republican and was an important member of George Bush’s administration. General Powell said the reason he was endorsing Obama was because the Republican Party was becoming more narrow and that Sarah Palin is not ready to be President.
I’m just reporting what I’m seeing on television.
