Former army general and former Secretary of State Colin, who served under US President George W. Bush said that he might not support the GOP nominee come the general election in November.
Former Secretary of State, Colin Powell said to CNN that he may not support the Republican nominee come November. He said: “I am keeping my options open at the moment.”
“I have voted for members of both parties in the course of my adult life,” Powell explained to CNN’s Wolf Blitzer. He is a former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. He added: “And as I said earlier, I will vote for the candidate I think can do the best job for America, whether that candidate is a Republican, a Democrat, or an Independent.”
Powell also gave praise to US Democratic hopeful Barack Obama, seeking the Democratic Party’s nomination. Powell called Obama a person that is exciting on the political stage.
“He has energized a lot of people in America,” Powell said praising Obama. He adds: “He has energized a lot of people around the world. And so I think he is worth listening to and seeing what he stands for.”
“I will ultimately vote for the person I believe brings to the American people the kind of vision the American people want to see for the next four years,” Powell continued. He would finish by saying: “A vision that reaches out to the rest of the world, that starts to restore confidence in America, that starts to restore favorable ratings to America. Frankly, we’ve lost a lot in recent years.”
