On Meet the Press, General Colin Powell, former Secretary of State for the Bush administration gave his endorsement to Barack Obama. He looked beyond party affiliation, and the fact that he doesn’t agree with Obama on every point. He has a lot to say about both men—one he has known and admired for many years (even calls him friend), and the other, he has recently gotten to know. Powell’s comments say volumes about the character and leadership abilities of both men.
