I’ve always admired Colin Powell. I felt like his part in starting the Iraq war was done out of loyalty, not out of belief in ridiculous charges. Admittedly, just a feeling. Sometimes that’s all you have to go on.
In this video, Powell is thoughtful, considered, and pretty amazing while endorsing Barack Obama. Is he being teleprompted? If not, his ability to hold all this argument in his mind and articulate it so clearly is phenomenal.
