    If you guys that stole my GOP can get Colin Powell to run for prez and I will vote for him. I am willing to overlook that United Nations "incident". That's my final offer.

    That is all.

    And they would lose my vote. With all due respect to Gen. Powell, I don't want him as President.

    OK!! FINE!!! I'll make a case for him.

    He KNOWS what it is like on the inside of the White House. I like to think of that as EXPERIENCE. He KNOWS how to run the military. He is NOW very aware of the absolute need for GOOD information. He is honest. He cannot be bought. He backed Obama over McCain because it was the intelligent choice. I respect him for that. That proves he is not a party hack. Powell took his lumps in the way he was used by Bush and didn't whine about it. That took mondo class.

    Need more?

    General Powell is not a politician and does not seem interested.

    I would rather see General Schwartzkopf run, but that's not going to happen either.

    Newt Gingrich is an alley-cat, IMO.

    I disagree with your assessment on Powell's decision to back Obama. I think it had everything to do with race and nothing with the him being better than McCain.

    McCain and Obama both sucked big time.

    I have no opinion as to the general's decision on Obama vs. McCain being based on race. But, I don't think he was "used" by Bush. He went with the same intelligence that everyone else had when he made the UN speech. He is one in a large group of people against the war, after they were for it of course. Further, I don't believe he is as great a leader as he is given credit for. He is certainly not in the same class as Petreaus. Even though I think that Mike Mullen has turned into a YES man, he is a better Chairman than Powell ever was.

    I wish Petreaus would run. He has leadership ability, foreign affairs experience, and is probably one of the smartest people in government at the present time. I believe President Obama gave him the CIA job to keep him quite until after the election. He'll fire him after he gets re-elected. If he gets re-elected.

    I'm good with that

    The left ignores the UN speech, the right ignores the Obama endorsement

    And we get a good guy
