Powell is such a hypocrite. He was coddled and brought along by Republicans when he really was nothing special, except an especially good boot-licker. Then he ingratiated himself with media by leaking all the time. He then endorses Bambi only because of race, when McCain was the kind of Republican Powell said the GOP should put forth as a candidate: moderate, works both sides of aisle, etc. McCain was also highly regarded by veterans as a POW. Powell’s aide Richard started the whole Valerie Plame blame game which got Scooter Libby jailed and tied down Rove for 2-3 years. Powell is just a POS and he does not deserve any further consideration. But of course so is Bambi, so Powell will probably drive the final nail into our country’s defense effort’s coffin with a smile on his and Bambi’s faces.
