Lawrence O'Donnell, writing on the Huffington Post, lays out his reasons why Colin Powell is getting ready to Endorse the Obama. Read what he has to say then I would like to hear your opinions. Do you think Colen Powell will do it? If he does, what will the effect be on the campaign? http://www.huffingtonpost.com/lawrence-odonnell/colin-powell-is-ready-to_b_134777.html

I don't know who Colin Powell will endorse, but he's an intelligent and thoughtful man whose opinion I'll respect either way. The person who wrote that article however, is a moron. I think his stupidity is summed up in this line: "And Powell is not one to ignore a 14 point lead in a New York Times poll." Pardon me, but I think a man like Colin Powell can think for himself and isn't some jerk who just goes along with some stupid poll from a biased newspaper. If he chooses to endorse Obama, it would be because he feels Obama is best for this country, not because the New York Times told him to.

I had a very strong feeling that he would do it(endorse Obama) because although I may be a democrat and he a republican, he always seemed to me as being highly intelligent and some one who would be "fair and balanced" when it came to making a decision

I thought he might do it but politics can be such a "pain in the a**" at times. He is going to take it big time for what he said. Many Republicans are really going to make him pay for this.

I don't think Powell will endorse Obama but, stranger things have happened. I like Powell he is probably one of the better Republicans out there. I really don't think it will have any effect on the campaigns either way.

I personally have always had a great deal of respect for Colin Powell and I think it could be one more defection that will tell the base that all is not as it should be. By the way ... I apologise to everyone about the spelling errors. I saw them as I hit the button and tried to go back to fix it but it was too late. :-(
