article imageColin Powell Says He's Voting For Obama

By Sadiq Green     Oct 19, 2008 in Politics
Speculation abounded that Colin Powell was going to make presidential endorsement on his scheduled appearance on Meet The Press. He didn't disappoint.
Colin Powell did indeed endorse Illinois Democrat Barack Obama for President. He said his decision is more looking forward to 2009 and not back to 2003. The retired General and former Secretary of State stated he would not campaign with the Illinois Senator but said he would be voting for him.
In an impromptu news conference made after this morning's taping of Meet The Press, out side of NBC's Washington, DC studio, he called John McCain a friend and a capable individual who would do a good job as president, but that he feels the country needs a generational shift that Barack Obama can provide. He also expressed dissappontment with the McCain campaigns tactic of attempting to tie Barack Obama to william Ayers, and the fact that they were labeling the Democrat as a socialist.
He also specifically sighted his displeasure with Minnesota Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann's statements that the Democratic members of Congress should be investigated for their anti-American views.
