    Too many crazies on the right, time to nominate a true moderate and true conservative.

    This guy sucks. No more. He was the coward that retreated from gulf war one, which we could of easily won the damn thing the first time.

    This is blatant disrespect, Powell didn't flee anything and has the heart and decency to put the looneytards in his own party in check.

    Powell told Bush about Iraq: "you break it, you own it"...

    Powell lost credibility with his WOMD- in Iraq- grandstandding at the UN.

    Never liked him or Condi.

    I heard they never liked you, either.

    Powell got fed misinformation like all American people did on Iraq but he was wise enough to remove himself from the fracas and not keep up a lie.

    I'd support him, Bass; I think Gen. Powell is a good and honest man who is the kind of leader who could reunite this country if that can be done at all.There's just one problem; apparently, he doesn't want the job. I wish he did.

    Apart from the fact (and it is a fact, not my opinion) that it was not Powell, but the UN that cost us Iraq the first time around, who the hell are you to call him a coward. Post your fucking military record, little man, and let's see which of you or Powell has the more courageous, more honorable service to this nation.

    If we could get Powell to run, I would vote for him in a heartbeat. Same with Condi. In fact, that's my ideal ticket 'Powell/Rice'. Or vise versa. Both are smarter, more honorable people than you could dare to dream to be.
