Colin Powell has decided endorse Barack Obama. The former Secretary of State under George Bush, the chosen to explain to the world, in the UNO, why we should invade Irak… now says he will not vote for McCain.
Well, the correct answer is, he [Barack Obama] is not a Muslim, he’s a Christian. He’s always been a Christian. But the really right answer is, ‘What if he is? Is there something wrong with being a Muslim in this country?’ The answer’s no, that’s not America. Is there something wrong with some 7-year-old Muslim American kid believing that he or she could be president? Yet I have heard senior members of my own party drop the suggestion, ‘He’s a Muslim and he might be associated with terrorists.’ This is not the way we should be doing it in America.
These days, John McCain probably is asking himself what was the porpouse of all the trash talk against Obama. But what’s done, is done. And it seems too late for big changes in polls until november 4th.
