Colin Powell

I have been seeing a few stories in the media about Powell meeting with Obama, and others. IMO, this is good! He is a man that I would trust and I am not a Repub, so me saying that is really something. I think he can be trusted and has respect and ethics, which is something dearly lacking in politics.

Will he make a run? Doubtful! He seems to not want to be in that light whatsoever. I like that! IMO, he would be an excellent Sec. of State for the next pres. A few of my friends at Pacifica Nation and I have been talking about maybe him for a Veep. I would have not prob with it, but I think Powell might. We must respect his wishes.

Although I will say he has some of the qualifications for leadership, diplomacy, military service, policy experience and a good presence. Like I have stated I am NOT a Repub and I would have little objections to him in the running. Of course, him going against the grain with Bush does not hurt either. I think he stayed as long as he did with Bush jr was because he felt some loyalty to Bush I and wanted to repay him somehow thru service to Jr. He quickly found that he was being used as a tool of these...people and he decided enough was enough.

I'm not sure Powell really likes the political limelight enough to throw hit hat into the ring.He seems to be giving some foreign policy advice at the moment.
