I am excited to hear that the one man most if not all Americans love and support has officially decided to support Obama; I have not been too critical of Powell for leaving Bush’s administration and not speaking out against W’s unwillingness to listen to his staff; better yet, I respect Powell for his loyalty to the president. Read the story here on why Powell will support Obama, who is looking like the eventual winner. I heard the former Secretary of State speak at Harding University years back; I was impressed at how this very conservative college embraced him.
According to Powell:
And I come to the conclusion that because of his ability to inspire, because of the inclusive nature of his campaign, because he is reaching out all across America, because of who he is and his rhetorical abilities — and you have to take that into account — as well as his substance — he has both style and substance, he has met the standard of being a successful president, being an exceptional president.
