But, for some reason, he is still regarded by many as a knowledgable elder statesman (for a Republican tool), so if he can't come out and support the GOP nominee, and has this to say, i'm happy to repeat it...
“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 offered praise for Illinois Sen. Barack Obama, who is seeking the Democratic presidential nomination, calling him an “exciting person on the political stage.
“He has energized a lot of people in America,” said Powell, who briefly weighed his own run for the White House in the mid-1990s. “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,” he said. “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.”
Not thanks to you, douche. But it sounds like Obama to me...If he says all that and ends up endorsing McCain, he's an idiot and right back on the shitlist
