    Yep, it's true:

    Colin Powell endorses Obama

    I wonder how long it will take some Nutter to drop by and say it's just one black guy endorsing another?

    Well blacks do vote around 98% Democrat.

    And it's no secret that blacks vote for other blacks.

    So then Colin Powell's endorsement shouldn't come as a great surprise to anyone. :cool:

    After 'W', I don't think Powell has a lot of love in his heart for the GOP.

    I'll bet unsealing those old divorce records is what swayed Colin Powell; it can't be Obama performance as CinC

    O’DONNELL: You worked for several Republican presidents. Are you still a Republican?

    POWELL: Yes. I think I’m a Republican of more moderate mold, and that’s something of a dying breed, I’m sorry to say. But, you know, the Republicans I work for are President Reagan, President Bush 41, the Howard Bakers of the world. People who were conservative, people who were willing to push their conservative views, but people who recognized hat at the end of the day you got to find a basis for compromise. Compromise is how this country runs.

    ROSE: Are you then saying that you may have to leave the Republican party that continues in the direction that it’s going?

    POWELL: No, I didn’t say that at all, but nice try. I said I’m a moderate Republican, and there are fewer of us. What party are you in, Charlie?
