Colin Powell may endorse Obama
Former Secretary of State Colin Powell may endorse Barack Obama as early as this weekend, a variety of news sources are reporting. Politico
The fact that this eventuality has been sepculated for months makes this less than surprising.
While I would never impugn Colin Powell's motives, I do think this falls somewhat short of a bold move considering the conventional wisdom has already as much as declared Obama the winner.
It's also not surprising considering that Powell has always appeared less than completely comfortable with the party and was never in the conservative camp.
