I was happy to hear that Colin Powell endorsed Obama this morning. I watched the video, which actually made me cry a little. It was quite moving, so I provide it for you here.
And you can see the photograph he refers to (from The New Yorker) here. It's worthwhile to look at all the photographs if you haven't seen them before.
Listening to Powell talk, kind of makes me pine for the days of old (when Republicans were articulate and sympathetic).
