I guess Colin Powell endorsed Obama.

Rush Limbaugh says its because they're both black.

Pretty much everybody else actually listened to what the guy said.

Republican ex-secretary of state calls Democrat ‘transformational figure’.

Colin Powell.

When I was younger, in elementary school, I wrote a book report on the biography of Colin Powell. I loved the man for what he had accomplished. When I read that book report to the class, it seemed well received, but later I got the n-word comments from kids a year younger than I was at the time.

When this man served for the Bush "2" administration, I mourned him as though he had died. I believe that he was wrong when he preached W's case for WMD's before the U.N., but in my eyes, he has returned to form and a just cause.

Perhaps there is redemption for all of us.
