Colin Powell has endorsed Barack Obama for President.
I woke up early this morning so I could be sure to catch Meet the Press… I knew Colin Powell was going to be on the show, and I had heard rumors that he may be ready to endorse a candidate.
I didn’t want to miss it.
I’ve known who my candidate was for months now…
… But to know that this man, a man who I respect so immensely has come to the same conclusion as me means a lot.
Colin Powell explained in detail why he is endorsing Barack Obama for President, and his words moved me to tears.
This was not a decision he came to lightly.
It was not easy to walk away from his personal friends- John McCain and George H.W. Bush among them- and tell the world that he will not be voting with his party or his colleagues come election day.
I am proud to stand in support of Barack Obama alongside such great men as Colin Powell… November 4th is just around the corner…
I pray the best man wins.
